I think there's a misunderstanding here: the only real problem in the
code above is the "See" which should be moved to the next line.
The reason for that is that the first line will sometimes be shown
without showing the rest.

We usually skip the "It is the" because it carries no useful information
and eats up space which is often a limitation since we don't want to go
over the 80 columns limit.
