    "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo." Is a gramatical English sentence. :)

    I think I've mentioned somewhere before on the board that my youngest nephew is in the 99th percentile for height and the 86th for weight, just a HUGE baby. The first time I posted pictures of the baby here, people commented on how big he was at 2 days old. Well, this is him now. He's 7 months old, sitting next to his 3 year old brother:

    Wow. He'd probably dwarf my almost three year old daughter too!

    This reminds me of a story about my oldest nephew. My older brother (half brother actually) and his wife are pretty tall. As a result, all my nephews and niece are tall for their ages.

    When my oldest nephew was twoish, he called a four year old boy "little boy". :lol:

    ^It's been ages since I'd seen that movie! Really, the sentence is gramatical; buffalo in that sentence refers to the city name, Buffalo, the animal (properly, bison), and the verb to buffalo, meaning to bully. It is a sentence commonly used to demonstrate a phenomenon called semantic satiation.

    Maybe I'm just having a brain fart, but I can't figure out which "buffalo" is what. Diagram that sentence, please! :p

    I watched the buffalo-clip, but when you start saying some of the buffalo-sentences possible, it sounds just as hilariously stupid as when you speak Malkovich -I thought.

    ^Because I typed a comma where there shouldn't have been one. Likely due to semantic satiation, actually. In trying to overcome the semantic satiation in order to type the correct number of buffalos I had say the sentence in my head slowly, and l placed a comma at my mental pause.
