Nice Clustr map.

No, but I don't suppose I'll be able to get anything else done for the rest of the day either! Can you?

I think I got the first bit: "Smith, where Jones had had"
and the last bit:
"had had the headmaster's approval."
But perhaps not.

The headmaster approved of neither Smith nor Jones.

Smith, where Jones had had "had", had had "had had";"had had" had had the headmaster's approval.

hey - you deleted 2 of the "hads"!! I had 13 - you have 11. Good answer tho. Here's the 13 solution:

Smith, where Jones had had "had had," had had "had had had"; "had had" had had the headmaster's approval.

that Smith really tries to push his luck. fortunately, the headmaster will have none of it.
