There was this reddit thread to see who can create the most confusing sentence.

Judging by the upvotes, I am guessing it is indeed a correct sentence. If so, can someone decipher this work of art? What exactly does this mean?

Has Anyone Really Been Far Even as Decided to Use Even Go Want to do Look More Like?

It is not a coherent sentence.

It started life several years ago on the 4chan video games board (probably as a deliberate troll) and led to a several people attempting to decipher it as a real question. Screenshots of this 4chan thread were then posted on reddit, and it has subsequently spread virulently from there.

Presumably, this explains why the reddit cognoscenti consider it worthy of their upvotes.
