Column 8 todayprovided an answer to the question of whether a shorter pangram than "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs" could get as short as 26 - i.e no repetition. I thought it unlikely as there just aren't enough vowels.

They happily advise a 29 letter one that repeats the "i" twice and the "" once...."'Quick wafting zephyrs vex bold Jim."

They also list "Playing jazz vibe chords quickly excites my wife."

Now I just have to remember them next time I want a pangram.
