A pangram is a phrase that contains every letter of the alphabet. It's also called a holoalphabetic sentence if you're looking for extra points. The best know example is the typewriter test drive phrase, “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog”. But that's boring. Let me commend you, “Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow”. If anyone asks, tell them it's from the Necronomicon.

The Unfact™ Of The Week.

The Unfact™ is, to the best of our knowledge, completely false and unsupportable. We are not responsible for any consequences that are bound to occur if you are silly enough to believe it.

The phrase "more than you can shake a stick at" or its variants have been recorded as far back as the Bronze Age. Philologists belive that it was coined in prehistoric times, possibly before the appearance of stone tools.

If me speak with tounge of snake, me hope that sky god throw cloud fire at I.

Recently I learned that the Latin phrase deus ex machina is a calque from the Greek από μηχανής θεός (“apo mekhanes theos”). The Greek version is much cooler and I have, to coin a phrase, portmanteaued a word based on it.

Apomekhanestheism. The use of said plot device. The adjective would be apomekhanestheistic.

No need to thank me.

Mmmm…hamdingers.
