Had had had had had

A very old phrase asks that you punctuate it to make it grammatically correct. Here's the phrase - John wheras Peter had had had had had had had had had had had the most marks in the exam. Here's as it should be - John, wheras Peter had had 'had', had had 'had had'. 'Had had' had had the most marks in the exam. Anyone know where it came from?
