Fears Can Be Funny

15Sep06

My hubby and I was reading through this web-page;

http://www.phobialist.com/  it’s all on phobias.

I thought we’d talk about fear – silly fears, completely normal or reasonable fears, the where are they fears….. according to the website these are the real terms for real fears. Except of course the ones Joe and I created at the very end. I have to put a quick disclaimer here I do not intend to pick on the fears of anyone however, like I said some of these were just too wonderful not to share.

Simply silly phobias or ones that just struck
us funny……

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- Fear of long words.

Alektorophobia- Fear of chickens.

Autodysomophobia- Fear of one that has a vile odor. (another possible name? funkophobia)

Dutchphobia- Fear of the Dutch.

Linonophobia- Fear of string.

Walloonphobia- Fear of the Walloons.

Geniophobia- Fear of chins. 

Perfectible reasonable phobias:

Algophobia- Fear of pain.

Amychophobia- Fear of scratches or being scratched.

Ankylophobia- Fear of immobility of a joint.

Anglophobia- Fear of England or English culture, etc.

Ballistophobia- Fear of missiles or bullets.

Zemmiphobia- Fear of the great mole rat. (With a name like the great mole rat he just does not sound friendly and thus logically would inspire fear.) 

Phobia’s that would really suck if you had it;

Clinophobia- Fear of going to bed.

Dextrophobia- Fear of objects at the right side of the body.

Levophobia- Fear of things to the left side of the body.

Ereuthrophobia- Fear of blushing.

Oenophobia- Fear of wines.

Optophobia- Fear of opening one’s eyes.  

Where are these phobias? (and our suggestions for possible names.)

The fear of late night commercials speaking of male enhancement drugs? pokeaphobia, smilingbobaphobia

The fear of being afraid? phobiaaphobia

The phobia of phobia lists? aboredaphobia

The phobia of Ron Popeil? roncoaphobia  

The phobia to leave ones own house? walkouttadadooraphobia
