Eight “buffalo” makes a correct sentence

Now, this sentence “Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo” totally looks and sounds like its from a guy who’s been drinking. But in fact it is a grammatically correct sentence.
Yes, you read that right.
The sentence uses three meanings of the word buffalo: the city of New York; the uncommon verb to buffalo, meaning “to bully or intimidate”; and the species of bison. Paraphrased, it means:
Bison from Buffalo that bully bison from Buffalo are themselves bullied by bison from Buffalo.”

Wow. Rather ingenious huh?

There’s also Diiwanna diiwanna Diiwanna diiwanna diiwanna Diiwanna diiwanna diiwanna.
It simply means that I… I uhmm.. Oh, forget it!
