This is a fun image I found on Neil Kodner’s blog:

KH(Ax)N

But I’ve never actually watched any of the Star Trek movies, so I decided to recreate the graph with Pikachu instead:

Unsurprisingly, people like to elongate the “u” in “pikachu” a lot better than they like to elongate the “a” and “i”, though I’m surprised just how many “pikachuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu”s are out there.
