Brawny gods just flocked up to quiz and vex him.

The wizard jumped quickly over seven green boxes.

Dave quickly spotted four women dozing in the jury box.

John quickly extemporized five tow bags.

Farmer Jack realized that big yellow quilts were expensive.

Jay began removing six dozen black quilts with petty flaws.
