What's the strangest phobia you have

67 funny phobias that really exist

Everyone is afraid of something. Many fears are understandable for most people - but some are so bizarre that you cannot really believe them. Because they sometimes affect everyday objects and things that make a phobia about it seem somehow crazy. For example, my colleague is so afraid of holes that she cannot even look at photos of honeycombs. I'm scared and disgusted with phlegm, also a phobia that has a name. You can find more strange, yet quite funny phobias in a list here.
