Can you...

...punctuate the following:

John while Jane had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher

John, while Jane had "had had had", had had "had had"; "had had" had a better effect on the teacher.

That works.

I was thinking...

John, while Jane had had "had," had had "had had." "Had had" had had a better effect on the teacher.

John, while Jane had "had had had had had had," had "had". "Had" had a better effect on the teacher.

Only half joking.

Who knows the one about fish-and-chips?

Don't know the fish and chips one. Bring it on.

This reminds me of this one where the goal was to get five 'and's in a row. This was the solution story:

There's a pub called the Dog and Duck. The signwriter put up a new sign for the place, but the landlord was not impressed. He said, can I have more space between Dog and 'and', and 'and' and Duck? You can do the punctuation ;-) I imagine the fish and chips one might be similar.

Word games were always a favorite of mine, and I know this one:

John, while Jane had had "had," had had "had had." "Had had" had had a better affect on the teacher.
