If jokes in manuals bother you, then you better not open Gnus manual :-)

Why be so strict and not let people put jokes into manuals?  We all know
what manuals are for, and still very few complain about such things.


Jokes in manuals do not bother me. Not generally.

Good gracious, this isn't even a good joke. What if this patch changed the joke to something better? "A @dfn{drag event} happens every time the user presses a mouse button and then moves the mouse to a different character position before releasing the button. While that should never happen in practice, you may find it necessary to react to such events to remind the user that no true Emacs operator even owns a mouse."

All the best,
