You know that annoying sentence composed solely of buffalo?
No? See the link then.

Anyway, it's annoying because it uses a place name, rare slang, and /they're not even buffalo/.

I think given such slack rules, and a little persistence, we should be able to do better.

I propose we name a ship "Crew crew crew crew crew crew", sail it to Crew and hire a small group of locals to serve onboard. We can then reasonably say:
Crew crew crew Crew crew crew crew crew crew.

Okay, so thats not entirely satisfying because of the number of repeats embedded in the ship name. But you get the idea.

The word with the most definitions is if I remember correctly, "Set". That may be fertile ground for a better sentence.

Better rules:
1) If you use a place-name, you can only use it once.
2) No archaic or parochial slang.
3) If something (other than a place) is named, you can only use it once, and it must either be a well known thing (person, etc), or is only allowed to have at most two repeats.

(more rules may be added to counter any other abuses)

       Crew crew Crew crew crew crew Crew crew.   

       Translation: Crew crew, who are themselves crewed by Crew crew, also act as crew for other crew from Crew.   

       It helps if you know that the crew are actually large mecha-like vehicles that require crew to operate. Matryoshka dolls of sorts

       I got multi-fishboned for router router router router rooter, so you're on thin ice, where is "Crew"? I know where Crewe is...

       Does this idea depend heavily on the fact that "Crew" (the place) is spelled "Crew"? Would it be a problem if the placename were actually spelled "Crewe"?

       I am not sure I will be able to get by without archaic or parochial slang. Leave me one or the other, will you?

       I noticed that additional words would turn a simpler named ship into a tongue twister: crewed; queued; crude; accrued; Cunard.

       //Would it be a problem if the placename were actually spelled "Crewe"?//   

       I think it would, but fortunately there is Crew, County Antrim, and Crew, County Tyrone, so take your pick.   

       //I am not sure I will be able to get by without archaic or parochial slang. Leave me one or the other, will you?//   

       To some extent this is in the eye of the beholder, I'm sure there's a bit of wriggle-room.
Basically, I think any minor infraction which is only used once (each) would probably be generally accepted.
