“The recipe said ‘Set the oven to 180 degrees‘“ (joke)

"Set the oven 180 degrees” usually means to set the oven’s heat to 180 degrees—not to turn the oven itself at an 180-degree angle. A popular joke is:

“The recipe said ‘Set the oven to 180 degrees,’ so I did, but now I can’t open it because the door faces the wall.”

The joke was cited on Twitter on December 18, 2012.
