First I saw of this topic....so I am going to post some useless tidbits.
"The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog'* back" This was Western Union'* teletype test sentence. It uses every letter of the alphabet, which makes it the perfect sentence for testing if the equipment works as it should. Still used today.
I bet taht you can sitll urendanstd tihs stnenece eevn thuogh I sepleld msot of it worng. Because even though humans can read, to make the language go faster what we do is subconciously memorize the word structure when we first see a word, keeping the first and last letters as keys. Try it on anything and i bet the person you show your own sentence to can read it out loud like it was spelled perfect.
And several sayings Confucious didn't publish:
"It takes many nails to build a crib, but only one screw to fill it"
"If you eat too much Peking duck, you end up with peeking turtle"
"If you eat too much swamp cabbage, you end up with swamp gas"
Ok, anyone else??
