    I can't agree more AND I couldn't agree more.

    I can't agree more AND I couldn't agree more.

    Why are there two ways of saying this?

    There aren't. We generally use only the second.

    In English there are usually at least two ways of saying the same thing. I'd say the second of those is more commonly heard.

    That sounded like a "good news-bad news" joke.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
