Useless Trivia

'Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo' is an entirely grammatically correct sentence - as 'buffalo' can mean the large bovine, the city in New York state, or a verb meaning 'to bully'. It was first created by linguist William J. Rapaport - from the University of, naturally, Buffalo.

Oddly enough I couldn't stop repeatedly muttering Buffalo while watching the Monday night meltdown. This was accompanied by head shaking.
