On a similar note, consider the following sentence:
"The teacher said that that that that that student wrote should have been a this."
Both are completely legitimate, grammatically correct sentences.

Can anyone write me a sentence that uses the word "and" fives times in a row in it and is grammatically correct? Try to refrain from googling and/or cheating.
Glory -- almost perfect. Make that one comma a semi colon, and you got it.

"Wouldn't the sentence 'I want to put two hyphens between the words Fish and And, and And and Chips in my Fish-And-Chips sign' have been clearer if quotation marks had been placed before Fish, and between Fish and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and Chips, and after Chips?"

Just FYI, Glory, I didn't Google it or cheat or anything, I had already seen it somewhere before and thought I'd throw it out here... ;-)
