Lipogrammatic Humor

If you are always straightening things, you have OCD.

If you are always eating things, you have OBCD.

The above joke that I received in an e-mail reminded me of the amusing and "progressively lipogrammatic epistolary fable", Ella Minnow Pea,
Or, of course, CDB by William Steig.

n. A piece of writing from which all words containing a particular letter have been deliberately omitted.

n. A sentence that uses all the letters of the alphabet. ex. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
