Ideo(t) Grammatica

To demonstrate that a sentence could be grammatically correct but meaningless, linguist Noam Chomsky proposed the sentence "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously." But of what, we might wonder, do they dream? This book traces this language dreaming where normal grammar takes a rest. But what awakens in its place?
What idiocy lies that way?
