Everybody loves my water buffalo

Sorry, this little bit of trivia reminded me of the Veggie Tales song about Water Buffaloes.

...Mine is fast, your's is slow...

Guess having that song stuck in my head is better than the headache I got trying to follow the structure of this actual sentence.
"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence used as an example of how homonyms and homophones can be used to create complicated constructs.
I think I will have to see if my 6th grader can figure it out.
