Quick brown cat


As we were walking Rusty outside the apartment, YK spotted a cat sleeping above the vending machine. As we approached with doggie in tow, it made a quick escape.

This brings to mind the pangram "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog". We grew up very familiar with this sentence that contains all of the letters of the alphabet. As far back as my mum's era, it has been used to test typewriters and in other applications involving all of the letters in the English alphabet, because it is also a short coherent sentence.
