I was looking for a word today and stumbled upon a list of phobias. Here’s some of the ones I found most humorous (note: all real words according to “The Phobia List”)…
Arachibutyrophobia- Fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.
(don’t ever give a dog peanut butter by the way, this happens to them and they freak out! *guilty look* what? I never did that…)
Eisoptrophobia- Fear of mirrors or of seeing oneself in a mirror.
(I’ve had some very frightening experiences looking into mirrors first thing in the morning…)
Dutchphobia- Fear of the Dutch.
(had to include it, although I can’t imagine why anyone would have this one, hehe)
Pantophobia- Fear of everything.
(who can tell me where that’s from? *wink*)
and my personal favorite…
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- Fear of long words.
(now come on, that’s just cruel!)
It’s just amazing what frightens people…
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (NKJV)
