What's the shortest sentence that uses all letters?

Our typing teacher introduced us to "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" because it is a sentence that has all the letters of the alphabet. Useful, that, in a typing class.

But what inefficiency! Redundant D, H, R, T. Coupla Us. Four Es! Four Os!

C'mon, we can do better, can't we?
