"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is an English language pangram. It's a sentence that uses every letter of the English alphabet once. Heh. That's pretty nifty. I just learned this from Edmund Clowney's BST commentary on 1 Peter.

Zeb's happy cow gave quarts of jinxed milk.

That was my best effort when I was playing with pangrams a few years ago. Google, and you'll find lots more fun ones. And read a fun little novel called "Ella Minnow Pea."

Dude. Didn't you ever wonder why they use that sentence in word processing programs to demonstrate fonts?
