English usage 101 (11:21 pm)

You probably haven't seen all of these.
They don't include one that I was taught in my youth though:

Jane, where John had had "had", had had "had had". "Had had" had had the teacher's approval.

Admittedly this one's even better though:

"Wouldn't the sentence 'I want to put two hyphens between words Fish and And, and And and Chips in my Fish-And-Chips sign' have been clearer if quotation marks had been placed before Fish, and between Fish and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and And, and And and and and and and Chips, and after Chips?"
