This one sentence says it all

By this time now you all should totally realize that my magical hubs don't follow any specific set of guide lines. My hubs are more for your entertainment, to make you smile, to exercise the mind, and to make people think with their brain. So thanks to my friend goody6 (aka; Brain) again, he gave me another great idea for an interesting hub to write. In the immortal words of goody6 " Great hubs are written by great people, and we each hold the power within us of writing a hub." That's really a pretty profound way of thinking, isn't it, and it doesn't have a single thing to do with this topic. The title of this hub probably explains it the best. So what is so great about one single sentence? What does it say that other sentences don't say? What does this sentence have that other sentences don't have? What puts it above the rest and makes this one solitary sentence stand out from all of the others? Well this one particular sentence written almost in the spirit of the writing style of the great legendary Dr. Seuss, has one very rare feature that most other sentences don't have. That unique trait is simply that this particular sentence uses every single letter in the English alphabet in it's content. Yes that's correct, every single letter in the alphabet is used in this one particular sentence. You might already know it, and I won't keep you any longer in suspense. The sentence is - " The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog" (as pictured above). This one sentence does indeed use every single letter of the English alphabet, plus it has three extra o's and one a,e,r & v. Which makes for a grand total of just only seven extra letters used in it's content. That's not really all that bad, for who ever came up with it. I know that this sentence is used in typing class for teaching purposes. I however didn't do all that well in the typing class at the local community college, and I just simply ended up being a one fingered taper. However since starting this hub I've been told from a person who is taking a typing coarse, that there is at least one other sentence out there somewhere that has every single letter in it as well. This individual told me that's what they have been practicing on typing in class, but they couldn't remember the said sentence. So guess what's next? Let's see if anybody can come up with any other GOOD sentences which contain every letter of the alphabet. I also want to really emphasize the word GOOD sentence. So if you by chance know of another sentence like this, then just simply list it below. But I've recently learned you have to be fast, because within the first hour of publishing my last hub, the first visitor drbj figured out all of the correct answers. It took me more time to write the hub, then it did for drbj to answer it correctly. Which was really cool, and a first for me. So good luck hubbers.............................

This type of sentence is called a pangram - it has all 26 letters. Your wish is my command: here are two more examples:

Wafting zephyrs quickly vexed Jumbo.

Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz.

Cheers! :)

Well, I couldn't even try to guess. But I see drbj's second sentence all the time on my fonts - 'That's why it's such a crazy sentence' and I had no idea why.

Learned something here and liked it!

Oh yeah, and...Welcome to Hubpages!

I've decided I'm okay with paling in comparison to Seuss' mastery:

"When I claimed to quote 'Puck on Kazoos' verbatim they (being big jerks) quibbled an awful lot over the exact words."

Yeah, don't ask what 'Puck on Kazoos' is. That was so much fun!

Oh yes - brings it all back. I learned to touch type at 16 years old - and I still type at at least 60wpm. And I learned using the pangram - 'the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog'! I see your first commenter gave you a couple of new pangrams - I sure can't think of any others! Voted up. Great hub.
