So today my Linguistics club played LTAG! and this is a quick tree approximation of what one of our sentences ended up looking like. We were really lenient with the grammaticality on a lot of stuff (I’m still not clear on what a ‘Barack Obama duck’ is, but I’m sure there a political lame duck joke in there somewhere).

If I get bored and have access to my treeing program, I’m gonna try to cobble the rest together. (Although I hate ternary branching, and I don’t know how to do coordinators binarily, so it might be difficult.)
