I grew up with “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”. Pretty straight forward.

I think that one was a line from ‘Airplane!’ they needed June Cleaver to decipher? :thinking:

There’s little evidence in this video to show that the dog is in fact lazy. The dog is standing and looks alert. Perhaps the dog is simply indifferent to the presence of the fox?

Next up: a video about someone jinking a cwm, zagging a veldt, and fobbing the Qursh pyx.

(That was always one of my favorite perfect pangrams: Jink cwm, zag veldt, fob Qursh pyx. Sounds like a perfectly sound plot for a heist movie. :slight_smile: )
