Whole alphabet in one sentence

Post by Jonathan » Fri Nov 13, 2015 12:11 am

In English the sentence: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" contains every letter of the alphabet, and has been used to practice calligraphy for many years.

What is a sentence in Dutch which uses every letter of the alphabet? Any standard sentences which do so? Can anyone make one up? Extra points if it's short and makes sense.
