Waiting for the But

Having to add qualifiers to a statement ahead of the statement always negates the qualifier. If you feel you must point out your innocence ahead of what you are about to say, that's a good indication that you shouldn't say it. If you must add multiple qualifiers, your "but" will make you seem like a butt. This comic is from Randall Munroe at xkcd. Go to the comic to see the bonus hover text punch line.
