Is that typo folklore? Yeez....
True folklore is of course Suzanne "ooh ooh" Monkey, the "blender -y"  
text, or the "rt" button. That's something we should not even  
*consider* to touch! :)

I remember one of the NaN coders, Janco, to go over the Tooltips. He  
did a relative quick job, with mostly pretty shallow descriptions. The  
typo *could* be a joke, but most likely it is just an error. Douglas  
did a good job in improving that.

Being the original Minister Of Silly Blender Names, I don't mind just  
to fix this. Let's better make our own folklore!
