Had Had Had Had Had Had Had A Riddle



Here's a little puzzle to ponder. The following sentence is
grammatically correct, it just needs to be given the correct
punctuation.





Ann while Bob had had had had had had had had had had had a
better effect on the teacher.



Scroll Down for the Answer:










Okay, here's the answer to the puzzle. I'm going to give both the correct
punctuation and a little explanation. (Believe me, it needs it!!):

Ann, while Bob had had "had", had had "had had". "Had had" had had a better
effect on the teacher.

It has to do with grammar. "Had had" is the past participle (I believe) and
Bob had [written] the wrong answer on his HW assignment (or
whatever), which was "had". Ann had [written] the correct answer, which was
"had had". Thus, While Bob had had "had" [on his paper], Ann had had "had
had" on her paper. The fact that Ann had "had had" on her paper made the
teacher happy.

I was nowhere near close to figuring it out ... and even after I was given
the answer,I still had to have it explained to me 10 zillion times.... but
then again, that's why I'm not an English major!! ;-)\
