Whereever they may roam

Believe it or not, this is a grammatically correct English sentence:

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

It was discovered/invented in 1972 by University of Buffalo linguist William
J. Rapaport. It means "Buffalo from the city of Buffalo that are intimidated
by other buffalo from the city of Buffalo themselves intimidate a third group of buffalo, also from Buffalo." From here.
