    Do you know anyone personally with strange phobias?
    Man, this one cracked me up all day, I was even laughing in the shower (try explaining that to anyone passing by)

    "Anatidaephobia is actually the fear that you are being watched by a duck."

    Yeah! Haven't you ever seen the awesome Far Side cartoon about it? This makes me wish I had enough posts to post photos. Or links for that matter.

    I find the choice of ads being shown more hilarious than the actual phobia.

    to be fair, he's probably just saying hi.
    the fear of air would be a nice phobia...

    I guess what cracks me up is just how specific the phobia is, duck, not 'something' but duck.

    It sure would make for a great skit/scene.

    -Anatidaephobic guy walks into a restaurant and says 'do you have duck?'
    -waitress says "yes we sure do, you love duck huh"
    -Anatidaephobic guy says 'no, i just like them dead and not watching me'


    How the hell do you confide in someone that you fear a duck is watching you?
