A phrasing system used especially in mathematics, but can be further extended to other formal systems, this method employs the following:

1. Write up the theorem to be proven, using superfluous gestures while reciting the exact wording used on the board.

2. Begin the proof. Make sure to use the proper "Let x be..." or "Assume that..."

3. During the most critical arguments of the proof, use phrases such as "Clearly this follows..." or "Certainly x must be..." or "Only a moron couldn't see that..."

4. Draw out the final conclusion, Q.E.D.
