Good morning, boys and girls! How many of you know what a lipogram is? If you do, you can skip this and just go on about your day (but you can stick around if you wantyou may just find this intriguing). If you don't: Wait! Put down that dictionary! You'll soon find out what I'm talking about.
A lipogram is a form of wordplay. I think wordplay is funin fact, totally coolso I thought I'd try my hand at this particular kind. What's unusual about making a lipogram is that it's not so much what you say, but what you don't say that counts. So look for what's not in this post, not for what is.
N.B. Occasionally you'll run across a lipogram by a pro (which I am not!), but I did not copy this from a book or anything. That's why I'm calling it "My Lipogram." It's kind of short, but it ain't half bad, if I may say so.
So. . . what's a lipogram? (Bonus points if, in saying what it is, you construct a similar sort of lipogram of your ownthat is, you avoid what I was avoiding.)

P.S. If you still don't know, go ongrab your dictionary and look it up.
Several other of my efforts involving alphabetic constraints (which could be called lipograms) can be found on this wordplay page (after clicking, scroll down).
