    Default Phobia Phun

    So yeah... had this really stupid idea about 19 seconds ago (from when I started typing "19 seconds ago", not from the point where I hit submit) and it made me smile a bit so I thought I'd share and see if we can do something suitably fun.

    What I propose is that we all create the most ridiculous phobias possible, the more absurd (yet plausible, not like a fear of 20ft tall pink aliens named Nigel), the better. Then we each decide which phobia we'd like to adopt and try to fit it in to regular conversation as much as possible for ONE WEEK. Like if someone says "You going out this weekend?" your answer would be "Can't. My Icecube-o-phobia is really bad this week" and hopefully the other person will either think you're mental or actually ask you questions, at which point you can try and keep a straight face and talk shite for a while to convince them that it's true.

    I know nobody will do it. I had fun thinking about it though!

    I'd love to do this, but I will literally have no social life until next thursday, so I'll have to do it then.
    However, I propose the following fears (I can't think of the phobia names, brain nay working)
    Fear of:
    -Unicorns
    -Badgers
    -Sensationalism
    -Politicians
    -pooping.

    There actually already is a corporaphobia... it's a fear of toilets. I shit you not. (Wahey! I'm here all week, try the fish.)

    How about phobias of;

    The internet.
    Breathing.
    Eating.
    Masturbation.
    People called Kevin.
    Televisions.

    Considering how fucked up people can be, I'd be willing to bet some of those already exist, but what the hell.

    I'm considering...

    1. Yellow umbrellas (the automatic type, not the manual ones)
    2. Red tracksuits
    3. Train conductors with beards
    4. Table tennis paddles where the rubber grippy bit is peeling off
    5. Chips with no vinegar
    6. Sellotape that's gone all dusty (that's my edited bit)

    EDIT - above!

    Tomaculumphobia - The fear of Bratwurst. (tomaculum is latin for bratwurst, really)
    Rubensphobia - The fear of red.
    Vestisphobia - The fearof clothing.

    Edit:

    Some things I couldn't translate into latin:

    Fear of Gingersweets
    Fear of postcards with children on them
    Fear of heart-shaped objects.

    I suffer from Reversecatophobia. It's the very rational fear that Yusef Islam will one day revert back to being Cat Stevens and that fucking cunt will start writing more fucking songs for fucking Westlife to fucking cover. That fuck.

    You see the thing is, I have several phobias IRL. Now while most are easy to explain, the worst is people touching my neck. I seriously freak the fuck out and punch people. This is linked (according to the doctor) to a fear of being strangled. Stay with me, we're nearly at the punchline...

    So the fear of being choked/strangled is called Pnigerophobia.

    With a Silent P.

    I think I win the phobia name war for pure hilarity. When I tell people I suffer from Pnigerophobia they think I'm a racist.

    But I'm totally up for this game. I'm having a bit of a concentration lapse today though, but I'm willing to be given THE MOST humiliating phobia and work with it ^_^
