Say-I-Did-Not

The ongoing controversy over the phrase “stay the course” reminds me, in an odd sort of way, of a well known Dr. Seuss story. With apologies to the good Doctor:

I did not say it in a box.
I did not say it with a fox.
I did not say it in a house.
I did not say it with a mouse.
I did not say it here or there.
I did not say it anywhere.
I did not say “Stay the course”
And you cannot prove i did, so there!
