Actually, it can't happen.

First of all, it sounds like you're saying a person would be saving up
20 extra turns.  But they wouldn't be saved; you are using up the
extra turns with all the extra drawing being done.

Second and most important, the instructions at the top of Action cards
say you do what the card says, and then discard the Action card.  So
you shouldn't discard Take Another Turn until *after* the extra turn
is over.  This prevents pathological loops that might happen with
small discard piles.
