You may remember the sentence, “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs” from elementary school. It’s a pangram, or holoalphabetic sentence: a sentence that uses all 26 letters in the English language. It’s useful for typesetting or printing so you can see how all the letters look. The RISD printmaking majors ran a contest to come up with new pangrams; higher points to those that used the fewest number of repeats.

My favorite: Do my quivering buttocks need juju-wax for them to zip closed?
