If a phrase meets a certain criteria, I call it an Ascending Phrase™.

1. Font and case do not matter.
2. No calculation is needed, unlike my last Phrase™ puzzle.
3. The meanings of the words are not helpful in finding the rule.

Bonus: If you have solved one of my Phrase™ or Word™ puzzles before, and you solve this one, you will be the first person to solve more than one of these types of puzzles of mine, and you will receive 100 rep points from me, on top of any other points that this puzzle might give (i.e. It might also have a regular bounty on it if it lasts long enough.)
