What is the longest sentence that can be constructed where all the consecutive characters are in the same 3ʳᵈ tone in Mandarin? I'm sure many people have heard of '请你给我买五百把纸雨伞', but are there any more interesting ones?

  • I'm voting to close this question because even though it's fun and all (I did that kind of games in language school too) it's not a good fit for the Q&A format of Stack Exchange.

  • A more appropriate question could be: "what's the correct tone sandhi of this sentence? (follows third-tone "nightmare")"

  • Please do not change the question entirely - you’ve just made all existing answers completely irrelevant to the new question.

    If you add "李" before the sentence, it will be longer:-)

  • too bad, you have to remove the punctuation marks to make it longer than the OP's 11 characters sentence
