Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.
Indeed, for any n ≥ 1, the sentence buffalo^n is grammatically correct (according to Chomskyan theories of grammar). The shortest is 'Buffalo!', meaning either 'Bully (someone)!', or 'Look, there are buffalo here!', or 'Behold, it is the city of Buffalo!' (Thanks, Wikipedia!)
