This is a myth. It apparently started as a joke, but has been spread

No matter how a language is described, a computer must use a
procedure to interpret it. One should remember that *in describing a language
the main goal is to explain how to write program in it and what such
programs mean.* The main goal *isn't* to describe the syntax.
