Top 10 Oddest Phobias

We are all afraid of different things. Some of them may be completely rational and founded. I am scared to death of spiders. But in my defense, I am also very allergic to them. Anytime I get bitten by a spider it results in me in the hospital with an IV of super antibiotics.

Other phobias leave you scratching your head. These are my top 10 oddest phobias.

10. Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of Peanut Butter sticking to the roof of your mouth.

9. Eleutherophobia is the fear of freedom.

8. Geliophobia is the fear of laughter.

7. Phobiophobic is the fear of fear. So they are afraid of being afraid?

6. Koumpounophobia is the fear of buttons. What did they ever do to you?

5. Nomophobia is the fear of being out of mobile contact.

4. Linonophobia is the fear of string.

3. Anthophobia is the fear of flowers. I bet they never complain that their husband doesn’t bring them flowers.

1. Toursiphobia is the fear of pickles.
