Python join: why is it string.join(list) instead of list.join(string)?

This has always confused me. It seems like this would be nicer: my_list = ["Hello", "world"] print my_list.join("-") # Produce: "Hello-world"Than this: my_list = ["Hello", "world"] print "-".join(my_list) # Produce: "Hello-world"Is there a specific reason it is like this?
