: : What do this phrase mean? - "pack my box with five dozen liqour jugs"
: It's called a pangram - a phrase or sentence that contains all 26 letters of the English alphabet.
The other pangram that is actually well known is "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." I looked over the list of 111, and my eye fell on no. 92. "Turgid saxophones blew over Mick's jazzy quiff." There is an obvious disconnect between what I was taught as the meaning of "quiff" and the way it is used here. I'll look it up, but if anyone wants to clarify I'll be all over gratituded. SS
