Buffalo!

Via my brother comes this delightful, impossible and completely grammatical English sentence:

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo

Try to figure out what it means. I’ll just give a quick hint and say that there are three different lexical values of ‘buffalo’ here. If you think you’ve got it, got too frustrated or just can’t be bothered, a full explanation is here.

MY GOD

This is brilliant. And “and And and and, and and and And, and And and and” etc. in the first addendum in the wiki page left me sprawled on the floor, clutching my abdomen with tears in my eyes. They even wrote about “אישה נעלה נעלה נעלה נעלה את הדלת בפני בעלה!”

But what about this:

Indianapolis indianapolis Indianapolis indianapolis indianapolis Indianapolis indianapolis.
Or even:

Fפר סבא כפר סבא Fפר סבא כפר סבא כפר סבא Fפר סבא כפר סבא.

Think you’re so smart, don’t you?
