Perhaps you meant "The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog"?
(Which also replaces the second 'the' by 'a', for a saving of two letters.)

I further see no reason for any of us to dispute Daniel's word (3) that the
distinction is realized in his 'lect solely by length. In those
circumstances, his choice of symbols is perfectly reasonable for a phonemic
analysis of his 'lect, and as that's all he was offering, the thread can now
descend into violent agreement. :)
