Ten unusual phobias:

  1. Arachibutyrophobia (fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth)
  2. Xanthophobia (fear of the color yellow)
  3. Barophobia (fear of gravity)
  4. Coprastasophobia (fear of constipation)
  5. Kathisophobia (fear of sitting down)
  6. Rhypophobia (fear of defecation)
  7. Selenophobia (fear of the moon)
  8. Symmetrophobia (fear of symmetry)
  9. Theologicophobia (fear of theology)
  10. Urophobia (fear of urine or urinating)

I compiled this list while I was researching pidgehuss's request for a list of people who are afraid of bunnies.

Just thought you should know.

As I was reading the Simpsons thread at TWoP a few minutes ago, I remembered that I posted a poll a few weeks ago asking people to choose between Frabruary and Smarch. I claimed at the time that it was not pointless poll; I was going to use the winner as part of the list I posted on the last day of Reader Request Month. But at the last minute I replaced that list entry with a George W. Bush joke, so the poll turned out to be pointless after all.

Smarch won decisively, by the way.
