A Tangent

I cannot take credit for this, but I do think this is my favorite sentence. I plan to memorize it and perfect it's delivery so that I can throw it out randomly.

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo

Just let it sink in. Read it again. Can you figure it out.

Try it this way.
Buffalo buffalo, Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

I find a few commas make it much easier to read. You can read more here.
There has got to be a punctuation lesson here somewhere!

I've never seen that before, let us know how you can put that into common usage. Extra points for dropping it in at Christmas dinner in casual conversation to an unsuspecting distant relative. Thanks!
