Had had had had.

 

So today was pathetic. Well the day ended good, but whatever. Alls not well that ends well. Well, not always. But whatever. Argh. Anyway. So i don’t have much to write here today, so i’ll just share something that i found interesting.

Okay so i found it on Listverse, which, i repeat is a website i love. Its awesome. So anyway. I found out that the following sentence:

“James while John had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher”

- is a completely legitimate English sentence. I tried to figure it out, but for the life of me i couldn’t! All i see after reading it, are a billion pointless ‘had’s  that don’t make any sense. =\ But ofcourse they do. I haven’t wikipedia-ed or googled it yet. I don’t want to. So if anyone can figure it out, do explain. : D

Okay, so thats that.

Yay. Happy thinking!

James while John had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher.

The sentence is grammatically correct, but only madness would lead anyone to diagram it. Even with punctuation it’s a bit difficult for some to parse:

James, while John had had "had", had had "had had";
"had had" had had a better effect on the teacher.

John wrote “had” and James wrote “had had”. The teacher liked “had had” more.

WHATEVER IT IS! got it ? :p
