Syntax error??

Why does the following line create a Syntax error in PHP.

$Mac = ( (strstr($query,'Mac') || (strstr($query,'Mc') ||
(strstr($query,'M ') );

The statement (it's two lines :P) has unmatched closing parentheses.
$Mac = ( (strstr($query,'Mac') || (strstr($query,'Mc') ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
1 2 3 2 3 4 3
|| (strstr($query,'M ') );

^ ^ ^ ^
4 5 4 3

The digits show the number of open parentheses. As you can see, you're
left with three by the end of the statement. I imagine that the
opening parenthesis before each strstr function call shouldn't be there.

Thanks! Sure makes you feel dumb when you make a stupid mistake like
that and then can't spot what is wrong!
