Weird Phobias

I was bored today so I decided to look up some phobias, and I sure found some weird ones.

Doxophobia- Fear of expressing opinions
Joe
-"So Bob, whats your opinion on this?"
Bob
-"I'm afraid I can't tell you Joe."
Joe
-"Oh come on, I won't be offended."
Bob
-"No really, I have a fear of expressing opinions."
Joe
- "Yeah? Well you weren't afraid to tell everyone you thought my wife was sleeping around with other men".
Bob
-"Well, that was a fact."


Cacophobia- Fear of ugliness
"
Its nothing personal. He is just afraid of you because you are ugly."

Catoptrophobia- Fear of mirrors
A sure sign that whomever has this must be a vampire.

Chronomentrophobia- Fear of clocks
Salvador Dali's painting makes sense now.
His painting is clearly an expression of the

nightmares he had about clocks as a child.

Epistemophobia- Fear of knowledge
Wow, you would have to be pretty stupid to have this fear.

Euphobia- Fear of hearing good news
Doctor - Jeff, I have something to tell you.
Jeff - Yes, Doctor? Is it about my wife?
Doctor - Yes, I'm afraid I have some good news.

Jeff - Oh, god, no!

Eurotophobia- Fear of female genitalia
I wonder how the treatment for this one works. "You must face your fears John....."

Geniophobia- Fear of chins
Jay Leno must be the ultimate monster for anyone that has this fear.

Lockiophobia- Fear of childbirth
Can men have this?

Menophobia- Fear of menstruation
....
.Can men have this?

Proctophobia- Fear of rectums
"And what do you see in these dreams?"
"Rectums, everywhere!"
"I see...."

Walloonphobia- Fear of the Walloons
What the heck is a walloon?

Well thats it. I hope you enjoyed reading it.
There are tons more, I just found those to be particularly interesting.

I'm SUPER surprised that "Walloon" doesn't set off my spell check...
