    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 more “durable” than the earlier proferred answers ... and contains an incorrect(!) leading space in " _".

      G'day eyepopslikeamosquito,

      ++ Marvellous paraphrasing: most impressive.

      '... and contains an incorrect(!) leading space in " _".'

      Given that he's requested pedantry not be overlooked, I'll just add:

      • ... and is missing the final underscore
      • ... and pointlessly and confusingly escapes the first underscore
      • ... and uses the wrong case for the first character
      • ... and, most importantly, is the only piece of code, in this entire thread, whose purpose and intent is not immediately obvious.
      $ perl -e 'my ($v1, $v2) = qw{A B}; print "My answer is \"\_" . $v1 . +" _" . $v2 . "\"\n";' My answer is "_A _B"

      Unfortunately, I can only downvote it once.

    say join( q{}, q{my answer is "_}, $v1, q{_}, $v2, q{_"} );

    "...it is “patchable.”"
