Ctrl+Shift+V  vs  Ctrl+VI usually right-click to see if there's a "Paste without formatting" or "Paste as plain text" option (indeed there is in Gmail!), but Rose just clued me in that there's a keyboard command that works in Gmail, TypePad, Thunderbird, and certain other applications!

    

Ctrl+Shift+V

pasting your text and then clicking on the little "Paste" icon to clean it up. MS Word -- Paste 1st, then clean up
