Awesomely Ridiculous And Ridiculously Awesome!

Apparently, this is the only picture of buffalo that I've taken.

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo."

According to this Wikipedia entry, the sentence above is an actual sentence. It has something to do with the fact that the word "buffalo" (usually understood as the animal) can also be used as a verb (meaning to confuse or intimidate), and that when capitalized, it refers to the city in New York state. You can read the entry if you want, but it's a bit confusing. I still like it because it's a good demonstration of how English can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. So if you're having trouble, don't give up hope!

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
