Top Ten Weirdest Phobias

These people are scared to death of things like this. I promise you that they are all existent and genuine. What boggles is how they came to be.

Which is the weirdest one, though?

The Top Ten Weirdest Phobias

1 Hydrophobophobia (Fear of Hydrophobia)

Hydrophobia: (I got this from Google) "Word History Hydrophobia is an older term for the disease rabies, and it means “fear of water.”... The name hydrophobia comes from the fact that animals and people with rabies get spasms in their throat muscles that are so painful that they cannot eat or drink, and so will refuse water in spite of being very thirsty." I don't have it, I just thought I would share.

So your afraid of people who are afraid of water?

Are you scared of getting the fear, because I am scared of getting the fear of snakes, so that is understandable if you look farther into it!

What? That's weird. in a good way.

2 Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia (Fear of Long Words)

The person who just learnt what he is suffering from had to be taken to a mental hospital

Well, if you have that, then this item must make you mentally insane. - Firemist

Wait, I can form "hippopotamus monstrous equipped daisy phobia" from that

You might have thought that they would give it a shorter name to take the pressure off of sufferers. - PositronWildhawk

3 Arachibutyrophobia (Fear of Peanut Butter Sticking to the Roof of Your Mouth)

Well I mean it could be jam or something, then we are in trouble!

This one is stupid because of dogs. What dog would be afraid of this

Why Peanut Butter? I know, very sticky, but what about treacle or golden syrup sticking to the roof of your mouth? How does peanut butter make a difference? - PositronWildhawk

Why? Why do people fear this? - KingSlayer93316

5 Anatidaephobia (Fear of Being Watched by a Duck)

Once you think about it, this might actually be creepy.

Fear of everything, WHAT!

This phobia isn't weird, it sounds terrifying. - ElSherlock

7 Autophobia (Fear of Oneself)

That would be unbelievably awkward!

This one doesn't make sense either

8 Papaphobia (Fear of the Pope)

I see a spider, and I am screaming until 2 hrs later THE SPIDER IS STILL THERE I do more screaming again. I think this fear is totally reasonable, I D K why its even in 'Top ten weirdest phobias'

It's reasonable in places like Brazil and Australia, where it probably originated, so I wouldn't say Arachnophobia was all that weird. It wouldn't be reasonable in places like the UK, where spiders are harmless, but in tropical places, fearing spiders is rational. - PositronWildhawk

18 Ombrophobia (Fear of Rain)
