Alphabet Efficiency

You know the sentence, "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"? It uses every letter in the alphabet, and so it's sometimes used to test fonts.

The thing is it uses like 30-something letters (I'm too lazy to count) and it uses the letter 'O' something like five times (too lazy, again).

If you're gonna make a sentence that uses every letter in the alphabet, then that sentence had better be 26 letters. Like this:

Q: When'd KFC's gravy blitz-jump ox?


Now, that's what I call efficient.

(PS: How can I be too lazy to count the letters in a sentence, but I can come up with a sentence using the entire alphabet?)


  1. One problem...that's a cow, not an ox.

  2. I think it's bull If you know what I mean?
