Get to know your buffalo!

Hard to believe, but this sentence uses various meanings and parts of speech for the term “buffalo” , making it a valid sentence:

1. “Buffalo” is a city in New York,

2. ”buffalo” can be used both as singular and plural term for bison,

3. ”buffalo” is a verb meaning “to bully, confuse, deceive, or intimidate.”

So this is the actual meaning of the sentence (via Wikipedia): ”Buffalo-origin bison that other Buffalo bison intimidate, themselves bully Buffalo bison.”
