Please, in your quest to find the pedantic,
please do not overlook the correct.
Because, in the coming decades(!) where your answer will
still be in service,
your foolishness is destined to be pored-over by an unpredictable succession of
people who have to decipher it.
The big-fear on their mind is that
somewhere amid your “extravagant typography™”,
“stylistic devices®”, “flowery analogies©”,
and “ ‘unnecessary’ «quotes»∞”,
there may lie a grain of truth.
Be kind to them ...
N.B.: A key take-away of your proferred solution is that
your source-code statement is
not more “patchable” nor
than the earlier proferred answers ... and contains
an incorrect(!) leading space in " _".
