Wow! I was reading up abt pangrams (sentences that use every letter of the alphabet) and was surprised to find out that even though there exists famous pangrams (The quick brown ... ) there still doesn't exist a good perfect pangram (a sentence that is a pangram and has exactly 26 letters). There exists a few such sentences but they don't make sense and are forced. So if any of you people can come up with a good one you can attain cult status (really?). After a li'll online research the most logical perfect pangram I could find was "Mr. Jock, TV quiz PhD, bags few lynx." - I know it doesn't make much sense but that's the best one I could find. Lemme know if you know any better ones.

The Guinness book, though it doesnt have a lot to say about smooth dark irish beer (mmm...), does mention the record for the shortest pangram as going to:

Veldt jynx grimps waqf zho buck

which means "a wryneck woodpecker from the grasslands of Africa climbed up the side of a male bovid which is grazing on sacred Muslim-owned land"

Believe it or not, Google ok'd all the words except grimps.
