Is there a phrase that uses every letter in the alphabet only once? I know the quick brown fox... uses them all, but it uses a bunch more then once.

Check for perfect pangrams.

There is, of course, a Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangram) entry.

I actually got there by typing into Google,
"uses every letter alphabet only once"

Hey awesome thanks alot guys! I was trying to remember that Lumox one from the old apples so hard!

Want to know why I want it? let me tell you. I got a broken keyboard, I wanted to rearrange all the keys to spell out a sentence, and then put it back together. Now I got a keyboard that says:

NEWJOB:FIX
MRGLUCKSHA
ZYTV,PDQ.

It's awesome! I wish hazy wasn't cut in half, but what can you do.

Are we referring to 'way too much free time' here?

Could be a diversionary tactic..

Boss: This keyboard's keys have fallen off.
Twelve Motion: That will take me a few days off work to fix.
Twelve Motion Thoughts: Hmm, I wonder if I can rearrange the keys into a sentence to annoy the boss..?

Few days later, TM comes back into work fully rested and caught up on forum reading/replying, with a keyboard reading

NEWJOB:FIXMRGLUCKSHAZYTV,PDQ.

Just an idea :rolleyes:
