The Impossible Sentences

"While had had had had had had had had had had had had had studied."

The background to this little tale is that there are two students. One is called Had and comes from Norway. The other is called Had Had and comes from Ghana. They both recently completed an English test on the past perfect…and Had Had did better than Had!

While Had had had 'had', Had Had had had 'had had'. Had Had had studied.

Perfect in its simplicity.
