That would be `C-x ( C-y C-x )' to define the macro (and as a side
effect do a single yank), and then `C-u 99 C-x e' to execute the macro
99 times (to get the remaining 99 yanks).

It's less effort than you might think, since creating a keyboard macro
for a repetitive task, is something you do frequently once you've
discovered it (at least I did).
