Would "Juxtaposed wily quim? Fucking brave Hazel." be better?

Unfortunately it doesn't mean anything; now you mention it though

Juxtaposed wily quims? Fucking brave Hazel.

makes sense, and may indeed be preferable to some.

Quote:
wily (comparative wilier or more wily, superlative wiliest or most wily)

1. sly, cunning, full of tricks

That's a good one, though the "are" is superfluous. Also, "galvanized" is the American spelling.

Thanks. Yeah, I thought it might sound nicer as a complete sentence. If you prefer it to be as short as possible, I suppose you could have: “Problem quickly fixed with galvanized jets.”

As for the -ize spelling, I prefer it over the -ise one – because I feel that the letter “z” is not used often enough and so I try to use it as much as I can.

I've seen one in an old Guiness Book of Records that only had 26 letters, something about cwm glyphs vexing someone or other. I'll look it up when I get home.

There's a list of perfect (26 letter) pangrams/holoalphabetic sentences on Wiki.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_pangrams

I guess it's in that list. I rather like
