Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.
Notice the period at the end of the preceding line? That means it is a sentence. No, really. It is. Thanks to Chelsea Brenegan and her linguistics training for enlightening me about the world's weirdest sentence.
Need help figuring it out? Think of it this way: The word ''buffalo'' in the sentence has three meanings -- the animal, the city in New York and the act of ''buffaloing'' which is another word for teasing or bullying. You could think of the sentence like this: THE buffalo FROM Buffalo WHO ARE buffaloed BY buffalo FROM Buffalo ALSO buffalo THE buffalo FROM Buffalo.
I'm still not entirely sure I get it, but I'm thoroughly intrigued! What do you think?
