Typing Lesson

written by: Carl "Papa" Palmer

 

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

"All the letters in the alphabet are used," Mom explains
as she checks the printed results for clarity, spacing and
alignment on each typewriter in the office supply section
of the Salvation Army Thrift Store before buying hers.

"It's called a pangram, however the word THE is used
twice. This sentence can be shortened by replacing one
of them with an A."

"Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs is an even
shorter pangram", she smiles, "however not something
an upstanding church secretary like me would type."
