I believe it was introduced in the seminal paper "The next 700 
programming languages" by Peter J. Landin, in the ISWIM abstract 
language of that paper, and later picked up by implemented 
languages later. ABC was the one that most influenced Python.

My guess is that it had nothing to do with being patronizing, and 
that it was just a more readable notation, but that's just like, 
my opinion man.
