Maybe my favorite show of all time, Futurama, coined the phrase “You are technically correct – the best kind of correct.” It’s a funnier line in context but technically correct is definitely the best flavor of correct when it comes to jokes.
When tiny truths you never thought about get framed in a perfectly novel way, the result is comedy gold. Here’s a few examples from the good folks on Twitter.
13. Not a flotation device
Just a warning if you're buying a watch on Amazon. I learned the hard way that if it says you can swim with it, this only applies if you can already swim without it.

12. This week, on making an open-mic-er
Being a serial killer is much like being a comedian, in that you either hit it big and get your own Netflix special, or you spend eternity popping up on sh^tty podcasts

9. You can do anything…once
The human body is incredible. Right now, if I so desired, I could do 15 percent of a backflip and wreck my sh^t right here on the sidewalk.

3. They couldn’t really reschedule it

Me: [mouthful of skittles] 1811 and 1813.

2. Decimated by decimals
If the number 666 is considered evil
then technically, 25.8069758 is the root of all evil.

1. She’ll outlive us all
Betty White is so old she starred on a 7-season TV show about being old that went off the air before most of you were born

Man. If being right in jokes is wrong, then I don’t want to be…wrong. Hmm. Ok, I confused myself with that one, I’ll need to go workshop it for a while.
