An e-cookie.
Ok, so the contest is a race.
So now you're thinking "a race to what blade of grass?", the contest is a race to see who can figure out what the sentence
"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" means.
The first person to figure it pout will win an e-cookie, and bragging right to the fact that they figured out (*hint; no google or asking for help, you need to figure it out, so if you already know the answer, dont answer) a tricky lexical ambiguity.

and....

GO!
P.S. The sentence of this contest is 100% grammatically correct.

all my legos are stored at my parents hose... so that wont be happening....

I had to look it up, so I'm disqualified. I never heard this thing before this thread, but I totally get it now that I got some learnings from google.

How do you know if you dont like it if you havent went inside and checked it out? thats like saying you dont like a certain drink, but you've never tried it..

I didnt even bother with OP, just a huge brain fart
eventually i looked it up... kinda cool

Because he posted once already, then came back to say "nobody cares." So yes, he did already see it, leave, and come back later.

But then, you'd see that if you read the whole thread.

It's a warning shout people used to yell when there was buffalos running towards you.
Like this
"Oh fuck, there's a buffalo over there!"
"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo"
*Everyone runs*

Nope, as long as you didn't search what the phrase is, then you just used your resources, basicly, of you only used google as a dictonary, than yes, you are not disqualified.

Had an idea but wanted to look it up to be sure.
Turns out the answer was a bit more in depth than I thought, but I was on the right track.
I'll offer a hint: "Police police".
