Here’s a plot of the number of hits from Google for various number of a’s in the word lame. I’ve omitted the entry with one a because that got 1,640,000 hits. I stopped at 30 a’s because that’s the first one that got zero hits.
For some reason there’s a surge at 23 a’s with 12 hits for laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame.
