OK, here's a bit of fun. Works better in spoken form but we have to make do!
Not my idea either but I'm afraid I don't know where it comes from so apologies if you've all heard it before.

Think of a meaningful sentence which contains the word "and", five times, consecutively (no other words in between), as in "and and and and and" *.
You can add punctuation but no full stops; this is just one sentence.

It can be done!

Here's the answer (have a good go at it before looking, it really can be done). Feel free to come up with a better answer if you can :D
Spoiler for * * * THE ANSWER - Part 1 * * *
Spoiler for * * * THE ANSWER - Part 2 * * *

* You might say that the question answers itself. Not a very good answer though.

Here is one related to this, but instead of coming up with the sentence, the trick is to make the sentence make sense.

"buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo"

No punctuation is needed, though a bit capitalization helps.

Spoiler for Here is how to read it
