Let's try a different sort of word game and you might have to look up a word for this one...or maybe not. How many kinds of phobias can we list? There are some that not only sound like a funny word but the fear itself is hilarious to many of us. Like..

Dromophobia is a fear of crossing the road ~ OK?!???

Unatractiphobia is a fear of ugly people. Now there's a worthwhile fear...lol

and my all time favorite~~

Phobatrivaphobia is a fear of trivia about phobias!

So if you already know a strange one then go ahead and post it. Otherwise just go to your favorite search engine, I usually just use Google, and enter 'phobias' and see what you can find. Share several if you like...

Arachibutyrophobia is a fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.

Oh wow tiggerrluvr! That's a great one. But IMHO how can someone fear flowers?!!? I had a plant nursery for many years and I love flowers...

Coulrophobia - fear of clowns. They had a clown at my school one afternoon and I made up some lame excuse to miss the assembly. I ended up with a half dozen kids in my room who also didn't like clowns.
