In the 1930’s, Strange as It Seems was a radio program of strange and unusual tales about fantastic people and events, based on the daily syndicated newspaper. Succeeding that production was a show called Stranger than Fiction. Opening lines for the two programs might be:
- The sentence “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.” uses every letter of the alphabet!
- Butterflies smell with their feet.
- A group of geese on the ground is a gaggle; a group of geese in the air is a skein!
