Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo

My new favourite podcast is Reply All, a show about the internet. The hosts, PJ Voght and Alex Goldman, are like anthropologists of the World Wide Web –  investigating, recording and explaining digital phenomena. For someone that’s perpetually disconnected and out of the loop, this show helps me catch up the latest viral trends and tap into the digital zeitgeist.

The latest internet factoid I've learned from these charming men: the sentence with only the word “buffalo” written eight times is, in fact, grammatically correct. Above is my graphic explanation for what it mean to say "Buffalo buffalo, Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo."

Super nerdy, I know. I’m just so happy to be in on the joke for once, no matter how late to the party.
