Crazy Gramatically Correct Sentence

by Admin

Oh, glorious StumbleUpon. Thanks to the wonderful time-waster, I discovered that the sentence below is actually gramatically correct. Like, seriously.

“Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.”

Confused? Not surprised. Wikipedia states that the phrase “is a grammatically valid sentence in the English language, used as an example of how homonyms and homophones can be used to create complicated linguistic constructs.”

So they’re just trying to f*** with us. It’s actually not so crazy if you listen to Wikipedia and do some word substitutions… “Buffalo bison whom other Buffalo bison bully, themselves bully Buffalo bison”.

Dammit I’m still confused. Click on the graphic below for the original Wikipedia article.
