Ever heard of a pangram? These fun examples will have you cracking up—you might even try to come up with your own!

What is a pangram?

A pangram is a sentence that includes every letter of the alphabet, A through Z. You’ve most likely heard of the pangram involving the quick brown fox, but there are actually many more examples. Some pangrams make sense, but others don’t. The purpose of a pangram is for fun wordplay, for artists to display various fonts in sentences using every letter, and they are useful to children that are learning to write, practice their handwriting, or learn cursive. Read on to discover some fun pangrams that every word lover will appreciate. Make sure to check out these funny sayings that are worth memorizing.
