The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
That’s the one I learned in typing class a million years ago. But I didn’t learn the word for it—pangram—till last month.
A pangram is a sentence that uses all the letters of the alphabet. And the quick brown fox is just one of them.
Adobe uses this one for font samples: Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow. Another popular one: Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.
Now I’ve come up with my own:
Bright kids squeeze juicy boxes when palms wave. (No one said it had to make sense.)
Why don’t you try it? I’d love to see what you come up with.
