Cutting it so that it’s in the shape of a circle.

A circle is just a bunch of edges very closely together

A circle is the limit of a regular n-gon as n approaches infinity.

Precisely what I said :p

It's not. "A bunch" implies a finite number. Any n-gon with a finite number of edges is not a circle.

Woah, do tell me more!

I teach college math, my guy. I'm just trying to educate here. You had the right idea, but the wording was problematic and incomplete.

While I appreciate the concern, I feel like this was not really the place to do it, my guy/gal/enby. Taking aside the fact that the wording was quite fine considering we're speaking here of a physical approximation of a circle and not the mathematical concept of one, we are on /r/jokes. Not really the place to be pedantic about stuff like this.
