Friday the 13th

…is the fear of Friday the 13th – don’t worry, it’s almost over.

Other interesting phobias which (apparently) exist:

Coulrophobia – Fear of Clowns
Ergasiophobia – Fear of Work (try that one for your next sickie…)
Automatonophobia – Fear of ventriloquist’s dummies, animatronic creatures, wax statues, anything that falsely represents a sentient being
Caligynephobia – Fear of beautiful women
Consecotaleophobia – Fear of chopsticks
Arachibutyrophobia – The fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia – Fear of long words
Phagophobia – Fear of being eaten
Phobophobia – Fear of phobias!

I wonder how many of these will be Hollywood blockbusters in the future…
