The Quick Brown Fox

The Quick Brown Fox |
Journal entry 2013

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.
