A small but appreciable number of users find flavor on buttons confusing. Remove this flavor. This retains flavor in headers, error messages, etc., which doesn't cause confusion.

rPf1245f4f3421: Remove flavor text for action buttons
Looked at a revision, task, paste, macro, etc.
"Clowncopterize" gets objected to with reasonable frequency.
I like this flavor, and "Clowncopterize" has a long history, but on the balance I think these flavorful labels are probably a net negative for the product. A small number of users find them actively confusing, and a small number of users don't find them confusing but are turned off by them or find them annoying or unprofessional or whatever else. While I think the majority of users don't have trouble with them, they aren't really all that funny or interesting.
In comparison, I haven't seen any confusion over the flavorful headers, and the flavorful error texts and features like "close out of spite" get reasonably consistent positive feedback.
I think "Clowncopterize" is the worst of these (and generates the most complaints) -- at least "Scuttle Task" sort of means "Close Task".
Once i18n is a little further along we could maybe bring this back as a translation or something?
