: : : 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
Okay, I looked it up and HERE it just means Mike had an idiosyncratic style of combing his hair. SS
