Ellem, I can hardly believe your boss could do such a thing!?
I remember myself at a few code reviews for my perl programs,
and even that was a little tense. I later came to terms with
the idea of code reviews and saw their impact as to the
'betterment' of my code.
However, your boss just scolded you right there!
I think that if your code was indeed "obvious", "clear", "over commented",
and (above all) "cautious", then I'd step in and support it.
Clearly, these are the qualities that do not hurt one's code
but rather make it maintainable and less bug-prone.
PS: I'm absolutely with you on your commnet about "that junk".
