This is a grammatically valid sentence in the English language. It is an example of word types can be combined to create sentences that are grammatically correct but complicated to understand. Wiki says it has been discussed in literature since 1972 when the sentence was used by William J. Rapaport at U of Buffalo. Well, isn't that appropriate?
