    What about 5 vowels consecutively (not necessarily all distinct) ??

    pareciously

    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.
