Good morning, and happy June to you all!
You might have seen in some of our recent Discovery emails that one of your fellow members, Simon Clark, sent in a pangram - a 26-word story with each word starting with the letters of the alphabet, in order. He’s challenged us all to do the same!
We’ve had some great ones sent in so far, which I’ll post below, and I wouldn’t mind betting a few of you can come up with some crackers! The ones below are wine-themed, but they don’t have to be…
Here’s the original from Simon:
“Anything but Chardonnay” declared Eberhart,
feigning Germanic (hock) inspired jealousy.
“Leaves me no option.”
“Perhaps, quintessential Riesling seems tasteful?
Unless Viktor’s Weissburgunder xceeds your Zweigelt”
And another brilliant one from Mr Saxon:
Avoiding bitter chastisement, David fought gentle heartburn including joints, knees , limbs, my neighbour’s overly precious quota rarely survived tasting unusual vinifications, weissburgunder, xarello , young Zinfandel.
Plus, here’s one from Mr Rees-Jones who has upped the game and done a backwards pangram (he made us laugh by suggesting he might have actually written a margnap ) :
Zany youth, Xavier, with very unpleasant trick. Sitting round quiet pub one night, mixed Latour, Kiwi juice in his glass. Foulest, execrable drink consumed by anyone!
Consider the gauntlet thrown!
