How many A’s in Braaaaaaaaaaains?

January 21st, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 16 Comments

Inspired by this intrepid fellow who set out to determine once and for all how many A’s are in Kirk’s legendary “KHAAAAAN”, I wanted to determine the proper amount of A’s to linger on when calling out for Braaaaaains.  The results may astound you!

Braaaaaaains Graph

Braaaaaaaaaaains, Braaaaaains, and Braaaaaaaains (11, 6 and 8 ) come in one two three.  Followed by 3, 4 and 5.  Which really says something, because despite them being easier to type, people just don’t feel they convey the proper Braaaaaaaaains sentiment that they’re going for when they decide to include extra A’s in Brains.  A slight and inexplicable resurgance comes with Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaains (21) before plummeting again.  It picks up for the final time at Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaains (39).  And nobody until today had bothered to type out a hundred A Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaains

So please, go the extra mile with your Braaaaaaaaaaains typing.  You’ll just look silly if you’re typing it with three or four or five A’s.

    The more you know….

    I hope some jackass writes his thesis about this.

    I’d be more interested in knowing the *exact* percentage of Linnea Quigley movies in which she *doesn’t* get her kit off.

  • 4 Wesley Stamper on Jan 21, 2009 at 12:39 pm

    Oh, and just for the record, I went to google and searched for “braaaaains” (5 a’s) and, disappointingly, it did *not* ask me if I meant to search for “braaaaaains” (6 a’s).
    Thanks for the freakin’ help, google!

  • 5 Houndstooth Mind on Jan 21, 2009 at 1:49 pm

    Now is this data for websites containingvarious “a” configurations or is it for searchers typing in various “a” configurations? ‘Cause that’s crucial to know!

    How many O’s are in the Troll movie’s “oh my god!”
    line?

    Wow, you really do have toooooo much time on your hands, don’t ya!

    Even perceived zombie-hunger is in the toilet this fiscal year, can anything stay afloat in this market (besides bloated undead, of course)?

    Nice graph! Reminds me of this.

  • 10 Pak-Man on Jan 22, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Now, if I’m reading that chart right, MORE people have typed out Braaaaaains than actually typing out the word Brains with just one a. This proves to me once and for all that most bloggers are zombies.
