Being fearful of things is a part of human nature. That’s why we watch Horror Movies, go to Haunted Houses, and tell Ghost Stories in the dark around a camp fire. It’s one thing to close your eyes when the killer is about to stab the star of the movie, but it’s a completely different thing to avoid a pizza joint, because they might have garlic bread, and you’re scared of garlic.
Weird, unusual, and just plain silly phobias plague hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Some are understandable…
But, the rest are just plain… well, you’ll see.
Aulophobia- Fear of flutes:
Easily the most ridiculous thing on this list is being afraid of a flute.
A wind instrument played by marching band members, the irony here would be if the Football Team Captain suffered from this phobia and ran off the field whenever the band played.
Bibliophobia- Fear of books:
The fear of books would be the perfect excuse for anyone that wanted to get out of doing homework at school. The downside would be that everyone would call you a weenie for being scared of books.
Chrmatophobia- Fear of money:
Let us go on record right now and say that if anyone at all is afraid of their money, we can help. We’ll take any and all of it right off of your hands. Consider it our way of saying thanks for reading.
Defecaloesiophobia- Fear of painful bowel movements:
No one wants to take a painful shit. But you know what, that’s what you get for eating that spicy jambalaya last night dillweed. Learn your lesson? Also, isn’t the picture above absolutely priceless?
Erythrophobia- Fear of redlights:
Honestly, show us someone who likes getting stopped at a red light and we’ll take this off the list. It pisses us all off to have to hit the brakes and avoid slamming into the car in front of us.
But, not liking and being afraid of, that’s two different things.
