Was just told this by the local sysadmin...

If you want to clean your kernel tree, you don't do 

make clean

you do

make mrproper

I had no idea where mrproper came from or that it had any significance
at all (for those of you who didn't know it had any significance 
until now, see if you can figure it out). I assumed it was the 
string for doing make clean in the kernel and didn't think any more about it.

In USA there is a liquid product to clean desktops etc called "Mr Clean"
(which I didn't know about either). It's for getting things cleaner
than clean. It's sold in Europe under the name "Mr Proper".
