Both the Headline AND the Story

Here's an English language sentence which IS grammatically correct AND conveys meaning:

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

It does include a few meanings of the word "buffalo" as well as the American city...

The 'translation'?

Bison from the city of Buffalo who are bullied by other bison from the city of Buffalo in turn bully yet other bison from the city of Buffalo.

Nothing like an academic exercise to remind you to GET BACK TO WORK!
