Make the preceding string of words a correct English sentence using punctuation.
You're missing part of it....
James, where John had had "had", had had "had had"; "had had" had had a better effect on the teacher.
I always get a little annoyed when a sentence paints me into a corner where I have no choice but to write "that that" or "had had", sometimes I reformulate the sentence, other times I'll drop one of the "thats" because most people don't even notice and sometimes I say, "**** it" and leave it as is.
