Supposedly it’s a grammatically correct, complete sentence.

Only if you’re clinically insane!

        Well, unless you have a white jacket with really long sleeves that tie together in the back, I guess … you wouldn’t know 😉

    An English teacher once posed me the challenge of turning this into a legitimate sentence by only adding punctuation is the correct places:

    Where Steve had had had Mary had had had had had had was right.

        Where Steve had had “had,” Mary had had “had had”; “had had” was right.
