Geometry buffs and other fans of quadrilaterals with four right angles were overcome with joy on Tuesday when a new poster for a third GI Joe movie surfaced at the 2014 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. Citing the fact that each adjacent pair of parallel sides in the shapes that make up the pattern are perpendicular, the excited mathematicians expressed a desire to see the film when it hits theaters, though returning director Jon Chu will need to finish making Jem and the Holograms first. In addition, the quadrilaterals with two axes of symmetry, each through a pair of opposite sides, belong to the larger class of quadrilaterals with at least one axis of symmetry through a pair of opposite sides. These quadrilaterals comprise isosceles trapezia and crossed isosceles trapezia.
"If you don't go and see GI Joe 3 in theaters," explained Dr. Newton Q. Fussypants, a world-renowned geometrist," you're a square!"
Dr. Fussypants then laughed so hard at his pun that snot came out of his nose and got all over his thick glasses in a perfect fibonacci spiral. The snot was... wait, hang on, I'm being interrupted.
Humorless GI Joe Fan: That's not a random pattern of rectangles, you jerk! It's the symbol of the Arashikage ninja clan that includes Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow! Everyone knows that!
Jude Terror: The what ninja clan?
Humorless GI Joe Fan: Arashikage!
Jude Terror: Gesundheit!
Here's a look at the poster, from ComingSoon.net:
