Top 10 Stupidest Phobias

The Top Ten

1 Anatidaephobia (the fear of somewhere, somehow a duck watching you)

The ducks are watching...

You never know man, a duck could be watching you right now. The chances of getting killed by a duck are low... but never zero.

Stupidity! why ducks? They just sit waddle or fly. Why not hawks (they could get your cat or dog or baby); or owls, for that matter, if you think something is watching you!

Area 51 is actually space ducks that have taken over a house and the illuminate is also run by space ducks because what other plausible can you think of that gets donald trump into the white house

2 Pentheraphobia (the fear of your mother-in-law)

Pretty much everyone is affraid of their mother-in-law. it's not their fault that they don't want to be eaten alive. ;D

That is completely normal in most people

Everyone is afraid of their mother-in-laws...

Hah. This is THE stupidest phobia known to man... Yet understandable

3 Chrometophobia (fear of money)

This is SO ironic considering the people who would do anything for money.

How can that be true some one running away from money it might be though

I have a feeling that most of these phobias are fake and nonexistent

They're all exist, do some research first. Most of these are very, very rare.

Seriously? Laugh out loud every people need money, and some people are willing to die just to have money.

4 Cherophobia (the fear of happiness)

I mean, sometimes you just think "something bad is going to happen quickly"

I feel bad for the people who have this phobia

I like the saddness


5 Bananaphobia (the fear of bananas)

You can dodge bullets but not bananas? I thought you could sense that with your... Peter Tingle!

Today is not a good day to be a minion

You better watch out there might be a BANANA!

When you were suspended for pointing a banana at someone and pretending to be a school shooter.

6 Biophobia (fear of living things)

So like you're not scared of corpses, but you are scared of the little Girl Scout next door?

So you’re telling me people who have this are scared of themselves lmao

This has to be the stupidest one by far

Your scared of yourself?

7 Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia (fear of long words)

The fear of long words, see the irony

Why is this a thing?! Very odd word indeed. I am interested in long words though.

The irony is overly understandable, yet it makes no sense. I, believe me had this phobia. That is why I am never saying this word ever again.

This phobia just wants to mess with people damn why did the phobia have to be so long

8 Euphobia (fear of hearing good news)

This is so stupid I would understand bad news but why a fear of GOOD news

People who have this must hate Futurama "Good news everyone"

Have you ever heard the album "Good News For People who Like Bad News" by Modest Mouse. Great for people with this phobia.

Bad news. I hate good news

9 Arachibutyrophobia (the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth)

Honestly man pet peeve of mine but I do have a fear of geese or ducks watching you.

for me, it's more of a pet peeve than a phobia

Yeah, this is stupid, (no offense to people who have this phobia)

Never thought that people would actually be scared of this. Yes, it's annoying, but still

10 Xanthophobia (fear of the color yellow)

Green lantern

Be colorblind, thank me later

I guess I kind of have this; a certain shade of bright yellow makes me feel sick (weird, I know). But to be scared of it? Really? That's just plain stupid

How insane would you have to be to fear yellow?

The Contenders

11 Panphobia (the fear of everything)

How on earth do you survive this? I mean you would faint at the sight of your blood, gravity, fear, even. It makes absolutely no sense at ALL.

Really fear of everything. That's gotta be rh the worst of all time.

This is highly unusual. I can imagine having panphobia/panophobia. Being scared of everything... Your house, your mom, the street, animals, food, water, light, dark, sleeping, your hands, going to the restroom, your clothes, paper, of yourself... Every single thing. How can you live through this?

I’ve got nothing else to say except-
Why is this a phobia and who has it I kinda wanna scare them by spending the rest of my life naming things just to scare them.

12 Triskaidekaphobia (the fear of the number 13)

I understand that it's a real fear, but its kinda confusing, why would someone be afraid of the number 13?

ok so yeah many people say that 13 is a horror number and there are many horror short stories based on the number 13, BUT COME ON! WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD EVER, EVER BE SCARED OF A NUMBER?! I MEAN.. THAT'S JUST PLAIN STUPID ! >:(

I had to spell this in a spelling test and I was 9

13 is an unlucky number lol

13 Didaskaleinophobia (fear of school)

If you had this phobia diagnosed by a therapist, would you have to go to school?

I have a fear of school everyday. The teachers look like old hags

If I have this can I skip school

Best phobia ever

14 Deipnophobia (the fear of having a dinner conversation)

Hmm... I can see why this might have some bad connotations for people, lol!

You shouldn't be that scared having a conversation especially if you want friends

So... You don't talk at dinner? If someone starts a conversation you'll run screaming?

Bet it would be hard to date someone like that. Also is it just dinner? What about breakfast and lunch?

15 Phobophobia (fear of fear)

Don't worry about it, then you won't have to deal with it (mind-blowing). Also, would the worst superhero have this fear...

Alright, so it looks like almost everything can be a phobia for some reasons.

Once you get scared, you get stuck in an eternal paradox of fear.

As soon as the slightest bit of fear hits you, which is instantly, it won't stop.

16 Paraskavedekatriaphobia (the fear of Friday the 13th)

It sucks though.

-My grandma's dog died that day
-The power always goes out or is close to
-There's always a thunderstorm
-Dad, please stop Jason Vorhees isn't coming to kill us
-Dad, neither is Michael Myers.

This superstition has its origins in Christianity. On the last supper that was on Friday, there were 13 people on the table ( Jesus and his 12 apostles ). One of them was a traitor ( Judas ). That's why many people still believes that this day is a day of bad luck.

Only for superstitious people.

Only superstitious people have this fear

17 Ithyphallophobia (the fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis)

Don't even bother saying "good morning" to the men with this fear

I have this, in get scared when I see my teacher looking thick as hell

If a man has an erection, he usually loves it. I LOVE getting one.

I ate wood on a dare one time

18 Ambulophobia (the fear of walking)

Why walk when you can somersault? they see me rollin'

Welcome to Lazy Town kids

I will walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more. Lol

Lazy people be like

19 Trypophobia (fear of holes)

Don't blame us... my friend has a really deep hole in her backyard and I hate it.

Hey honey would you like to hangout in the bed room... AH GET THAT THING AWAY FROM ME

OOOH. I have this and whenever I see irregular clusters of small holes I start to panic and I nearlt passed out one time

I have this phobia and it's HORRIFYING. If you don't know why and think it's stupid, search it up.

Have a good day.

20 Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia (fear of the number 666)

This number is a myth. Don't believe any videos, looking at you clickbaiters.

Whoever named this must have just smashed their keyboard.

It's not stupid. 666 is meant to be "The number of the Devil" or as some people I remember used to call it "Hells area code" these names seem stupid but the fear is very real.

It's just a number

21 Pteronophobia (the fear of being tickled by feathers)

I love that it's specifically feathers, not just being tickled in general

I guess a lot of people don't like being tickled, but an actual phobia that's something else.

I'm scared of ANYTHING touching my neck. Literally, if I'm laying down on grass I have to get up because the grass touched my neck :/ probably because I'm insanely sensitive and get extremely aroused if anyone even strokes my neck. and people wonder why I wear a scarf inside

Ill have fun touching these people with my handy dandy feather

22 Medomalacuphobia (fear of losing an erection)

It's gotta go sometime!

I have spent over $3,000 in Viagra in the past 8 months, I have had an erection for the past 8 months as well, I just take like 6 of them before I go to bed each night and I wake up each morning with my erection still there.

This is stupid

Thicker peen is my best friend. I have no one

23 Agyrophobia (the fear of crossing the street)

The duck does not have this

This is actually so retarded, honestly this must be such a pain in the ass ngl

I used to have this because I always thought that I was going to be hit by a car

Why did the chicken cross the road? He didn't. I feel bad fer all of you guys who have this.

24 Homophobia (dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people)

It's not a fear, it's more of a hatred by moronic religious extremists who don't know that homosexuality is a natural thing of the human nature.

So you hate me just because I like someone the same sex as me? Okayyy.. You don't even know me personally. Yes I know it is a sin, but the Bible says that you shouldn't judge anyone. Plus it's a hate crime. You just look at a gay person and decipher my entire like based on how you think I lived my life. But whatever dude. Have a blessed day.

It is not a "hate crime," hate crimes don't exist.

Also the title is wrong. People with prejudices are not included in homophobia, people just like to use the word in the wrong way.

"Man shall not lie with man as with woman; it is an abomination." Leviticus 13:22
Translated into redneckenese: a man and a man shouldn't have feelings of love for each other like a man and a woman would. Same goes for a woman and a woman. It's a sin. But don't treat gays like scum or nothing. I have plenty of homosexual friends.

Religion is stupid. Just because some unknown man 2000 years ago said homosexuality was a sin doesn't mean It's bad. I'm going to respect a man, treat him well, love him, and make sure he lives the life he wants, not what you want. Homophobia are for kids, not grown adults brainwashed by this made up religion to distract you from dying and not existing. I respect people with religion, but that gives you NO right to try to change anyone's lives. That is injustice and Selfishness. We are loving, you are not. Have a good day.

It is a sin, but you could still be friends with them, and ignore the fact they are gay.

25 Omphalophobia (fear of belly buttons)

I'm afraid of people touching it or if I touch it but seeing it isn't scary

I probably have this, I'm highkey afraid of my belly button, its basically a hole that leads to your guts. Like what if it rips...

Well then... What?

Because we all have one and it's weird
