    Bill, where Ben had had "had", had had "had had";
    "had had" had had the better effect on the teacher.

    The second one addles me.

    That "that" is "is"; that "that" is not "is not". Is that it? It is.

    Not.

    Well, I had:

    That that is, is.
    That that is not, is not.
    Is that it? It is.

    And if we change one of the names to Had (short for Hadley) we can have:
    Bill, where Had had had "had", had had "had had". Had Had had "had had", "had had" would have been better.

    Yes, punctuation is important:

    Dear Jack,

    I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we’re apart. I can be forever happy – will you let me be yours?

    Jill

    Yours,
