Thank you. I've just finished breakfast and haven't had dessert yet, so a cookie would be nice.

No, I think she wanted a serious response.

Oh, wait, :rolleyes: I see - yeah, you're right - you probably shouldn't post to this thread since all your posts are made facetiously. :rofl:

Did no one notice that *Kia* said 'all five vowels', or are you all just over-achievers?

The best I can think of so far are 4 vowels: buoyant (and variants), bayou, joyous, aqueous.

Sorry honestrosewater but they neither contain all five vowels, nor are the vowels in the correct order....

Oh, those were for dextercioby's challenge: What about 5 vowels consecutively (not necessarily all distinct) ?? The best I could do was 4 consecutive. :smile:
