There is a local pizza chain that advertises that their pizzas are square because they don't cut corners. Wouldn't it make more sense, then, to make round pizzas, which inherently lack corners?

And then Trader Joe's describes their slicing brie as being shaped between a square and a rectangle. That would actually make it a rectangle. There is further confusion because I suspect the cheese is actually 3-dimensional.

Are advertisers exempt from basic geometry?
