In the same vein in French (quoted by "L'Actualité" magazine [Montréal], 15

"Portez ce vieux whisky au juge blond qui fume" (anonyme).

This sentence contains the 26 letters of the French alphabet.

It means (literally and accurately):
"Bear this old whishy to the blonde judge who is smoking".
("bear" used to mean "bring")
