The German word "gerade"

I found this funny explanation about the word ‘gerade’ on Reddit under the title ‘Geradeception’:

The German word ‘gerade’ can mean:

  • straight
  • right now
  • especially

The word “die Gerade” means:

  • straight line

So, the sentence, “Ich fragte gerade, warum gerade diese Gerade so gerade ist” means:
“I just wondered why especially this line is so straight.”
