What is the longest meaningful sentence you can make with words that all have the same number of letters? eg:

Well that Blue Note Jazz Club sure aint dull, just don't tell them that.

       lol well played.

       sorry simon about those prior nasty words which yours truly wrote there

       [pocmloc] - 1. This is not a list, it is a new word game, check the category. I know you are still fairly new around here but please try and learn what MFD's are for.   

       2. all words must have an equal amount of letters   

       3. your contribution makes little sense.

       "Able, aces, ache, achy, acid, acme, acne, acre, acts,
...
zany, zaps, zeal, zebu, zero, zoos,"
have four each.
  

       (Many more seem good.)

       //Well that Blue Note Jazz Club sure aint dull, just don't tell them that.//   

       "Ain't" is a contraction from which you omitted the apostrophe. Does it still count? Also, I can make the phrase longer: "Well that Blue Note Jazz Club sure aint dull, just don't tell them that, okay?"

       apostrophes are okay

       "Well, you can try and get one bun you can eat now, but hey, why not ask our mom and dad for one for our pal Dan you can eat his now too you big pig."   

       great effort, except for the first word :)

       How about amending the rules such that the score is the number of words multiplied by the number of letters per word? This would account for the fact that longer words are harder to use than shorter words.

       So, [DD], [MB] et al.,
{gives up game play}
which of those words is the main verb?

       Tricky format.

       As an additional rule, pertinent to the title, all sentences should be spoken in a jazz rhythm.   

       This could also allow for uncommon contractions as long as they fit the accent.   

       Now ay's n'er bin one tah git ran' tan all nih' ... wid dem ho's   

       Well, it made sense to me (and yes I know the last apostrophe is technically incorrect).

       //all sentences should be spoken in a jazz rhythm// and in a diminished scale.

       I think the word length should count for double.

       Someone, perhaps, mightn't attempt success (scoring seventy) without several neurons heating greatly.

       Incessantly irradiating chinchillas ameliorates undesirable microbiotic degradation, alleviating pervasively malodourous, unendurable, disagreeably biochemical outgassings.
