No, you can't remove the silly sentence (what GPG calls the 'comment'),
since it's part of the UID, and UIDs can't be removed, only revoked.

Unless your key has not been uploaded to a public keyserver, you can't
get rid of the comment by any other means than making a new key. If it
hasn't been uploaded to a public keyserver, you can remove the UID.
