Arachibutyrophobia is the phobia related to the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth - read that fist in a Modesty Blaise book years ago. Facinating stufff!

Hippopotomonstrosesquippadaliophobia is the fear of long words.



BoogieMonster runs around the room screaming.

Here are some weird phobias I found…

Standing upright- Basistasiphobia or Basostasophobia. - I know a lot of workers and teenagers who suffer from this one.

Ugliness- Cacophobia.

Thinking- Phronemophobia - also know some people who suffer from this - creationists, politicians, celebrities and Julius Malema

Spirits- Pneumatiphobia - I’m not sure if this refers to ghosts or alchohol

Shadows- Sciophobia or Sciaphobia.

Pointed objects- Aichmophobia. - I wonder if there’s an opposite one, fear of blunt objects?

Chickens- Alektorophobia.- I can’t imagine anyone cowering in a corner because they’re terrified of chickens.

Crosses or the crucifix- Staurophobia.- that explains why vampires cower when they see one, or is it because they’re really afraid of bullshit?

Purple, color- Porphyrophobia.

Knowledge- Gnosiophobia or Epistemophobia.- see thinking.

Ha! The scary listpeople left out cyberkatalogophobia, the fear of computerized lists! I’m a sufferer, you know… >:D
