Like the retards who constantly use "quotes" when they speak, some people feel the need to couch their statements all the time. Words like "always" or "never" are not in their vocabulary. This means that they can debate the meaning of any problematic statements they made, or make the pedantic point that there are no absolutes.

Restated in their words:

Somewhat like the people who often use "quotes" when they speak, some people feel the need to couch their statements some of the time.

Don't you mean "Restated version seems much better"? If anyone wants to argue about it, you can say "I said that it 'seems' much better, not it 'is' much better, so I didn't really make a judgement"

Maybe I was "definite" about the couched statement version for "comic" "effect"?

I was taught to never use absolute statements in graduate school, because there's always an exception. So, I never do.

I read that as 'retarded version'.

Can you tell me where my country lies?
Said the unifaun to his true love's eyes
It lies with me, cried the Queen of Maybe
For her merchandise, he traded in his prize

Queen of Maybe? You mean Mary Queen of Scots?
