Perfect Nonsense?

Here we present you with some perfect nonsense:

Mary where Jane had had had had had had had had had had had the teachers approval.

With a little helpful punctuation, we can see the past perfect and simple tenses:

Mary, where Jane had had "had had", had had "had". "had had" had had the teacher's approval.

(I am a nobody. Nobody is perfect. Therefore I am perfect.)
