Hi Alan (and others),

Oops, it didn't cross my mind that it could be a joke!  I think David is
right, though.  As the message stands, it might not be that obvious that
it's a joke -- indeed, I'm living witness to that fact :)  I mistook it
for just an error message written by a non-native English speaker, and
didn't think to run a `git blame` to find out who wrote it.

I'll reroll the patch with a different message that preserves the joke
but makes it more obvious that it's a joke.  That way I'll hopefully
prevent anyone else from writing similar patches in the future ;)
