Don’t worry if the title of this entry does not make any sense to you. Today (March 4th) is National Grammar Day, as introduced by The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar. The folks at Mental Floss have picked up this opportunity to impress you with sentences that are grammatically correct but also very strange, such as the one in our title. You may have heard of “The horse raced past the barn fell.”, but have you heard of this one here?

“This exceeding trifling witling, considering ranting criticizing concerning adopting fitting wording being exhibiting transcending learning, was displaying, notwithstanding ridiculing, surpassing boasting swelling reasoning, respecting correcting erring writing, and touching detecting deceiving arguing during debating.”
