What's the difference between a comment and a question?

Who cares about age. I bet there was some hot MILFage going down at this show, though. Older attractive women are a great time in bed.

If it's a rhetorical question, then it's a comment.

A rhetorical question is a figure of speech in the form of a question posed for its persuasive effect without the expectation of a reply (e.g.: "Why me?")[1] Rhetorical questions encourage the listener to think about what the (often obvious) answer to the question must be. When a speaker states, "How much longer must our people endure this injustice?", no formal answer is expected. Rather, it is a device used by the speaker to assert or deny something.

I feel sorry for the hummus guy. He reminds me of Christ--he does so much for us, yet is so misunderstood.

Many cuisine-related sources carry forward a folklore which describes hummus as one of the oldest known prepared foods with a long history in the Middle East stretching back to antiquity, but its historical origins are unknown. The historical enigma is such that the origins of hummus-bi-tahini could be much more recent than is widely believed. One of the earliest verifiable descriptions of hummus comes from 18th-century Damascus and the same source claims it was unknown elsewhere.

Meanwhile some cookbooks repeat the legend that hummus was first prepared in the 12th century by Saladin. Sources such as Cooking in Ancient Civilizations by Cathy K. Kaufman carry speculative recipes for an ancient Egyptian hummus, substituting vinegar for lemon juice, but acknowledge we do not know how the Egyptians ate their chick-peas. Similarly, no recipe for hummus has been identified among the many books on cooking surviving from ancient Rome.

I drank too much last night. I had a belly full of hummus. I threw it all up in the bar right on this dudes face and shoulder. He proceeded to walk up to the bartender and ask for some pretzel sticks to scoop up the remains for a late night snack.
