Yellow yelling yaks yanked the yoghurt from the yapping Yorkshire Terrier.

The Zulu zebra zig-zagged around the overzealous Zebu.

Here is one started off by a young man who had just started to read Harry Potter. He got a little stuck, so some our kind Y10's helped him out with their knowledge of the whole series of books.
