Indeed, the sentence that confused you was added because people were continually confused by the fact that doing:

   'foo.boo'.strip('.boo')

would result in 'f' rather than 'foo'.

We would welcome an improvement, but apparently this is very hard to make clear.

Repeating the mississippi example is probably a good idea.
