Until the last pun, I wasn't reading the first syllable with a long "O"
sound. Now that I am, I think you just made another pun.
I have seen several scripts that were pulled from...there.

Prefs -> Script Editor. I am likely the only person who has always kept
coloRizing turned off. Coming from HyperCard, I was used to it and the
rainbow hues of a colorized script distracted me. I couldn't concentrate
on the content, I kept seeing the colors. I have slowly adjusted to it
enough that I can read other people's multi-hued scripts but I still
keep it off in my own work.
I have come to realize that people generally think that's nuts.
