I've never tried peanut butter. Is that strange? 

Very.

Next question :)

Unless of course you are allergic to nuts - in which case it is eminently not strange.

Oh - and I just took my daughter out to lunch and we had awesome frozen yogurt and fruit for dessert.

My yogurt selection was cheesecake, coconut and raspberry sorbet with 3 kinds of melon.  Yum!!

You are freaking me out with all your banana talk Funny Paper. However, I LOVE spiders! 

Butterflies? Explain yourself immediately!

I guess butterflies would startle me.  The way they fluttered around suddenly getting in your face, and also you can see the ugly bug body, carried around by the wings. 

I was also deathly afraid of crabs on the beach.  I grew up in Acapulco, Mexico, and I never wanted to be on the beach at sundown, because that's when a multitude of crabs would suddenly come out of their holes and go scuttling all over the place.  Once I was tagging along with my older sister and her boyfriend as they strolled along the beach, and when the crabs started coming out, I shrieked and demanded that the boyfriend hoist me up on his shoulders.  My crab phobia relates to my arachnophobia -- crabs look like giant spiders dressed in kabuki armor.blue-meanie

What's a phobia of bananas called, Hannah? Do you know? This stuff fascinates me. Is it something that happened to you that triggered it or have you had it all your life?

I think it's actually called bananaphobia! There was a little bit in the Metro (newspaper) about someone who had it, can't remember why that was deemed newsworthy! I think I've only had it since I was a teenager I'm sure I ate them as a kid. I don't know what it is, it's the smell, the texture, the shape, everything! I work with a very mischievous man who is constantly taunting me about it, the other day I walked into the office and he said "catch" and threw something at me which I instinctively caught and it was a banana of course! He also put one on my keyboard and I made him swap keyboards with me! I'm a bit of a weirdo really! 

Bananaphobia, of course. Sometimes things are best kept simple, I guess! Here was me thinking there would be this really long and difficult to pronounce word deriving from latin.

And, don't worry, you're no weirdo because of that. :D

Bananaphobia: The woman who was so terrified of the fruit she couldn't eat one for 20 years

"Now aged 23 and after years of enduring a phobia to bananas she has finally conquered a childhood fear that saw her nauseous at the sight of one."

For a second, I thought this was a parody headline, kinda like what the Onion does.

And in the article, they mentioned as one of the ten strangest phobias coulrophobia, the fear of clowns... my wife has that one. She is horrifically afraid of them. She saw It as a child and that was all it took for her clown phobia to kick in.

I have been afraid of elevators since I was 7 years old. I've gotten better over the years, but I still get panicked when the doors open quick enough. Its a good thing I don't live in a big city where I would have to ride an elevator a lot. I know it sounds stupid because its a Disney movie, based on Disney ride, but the Tower of Terror is what started it. In the movie the elevator got trapped and in real life the ride drops at high speeds. So, I am always afraid I am going to get trapped or its going to fall.

Well, I think I have you all beat on strange phobias.  I used to have a fear of Antarctica -- I guess you could call it "Antarcticophobia".  Every time I saw a map or globe showing the world dip down to Antarctica, I felt a strange fear.  It's not quite as bad anymore these days...

Must have been a premonition of global warming - do you live near the coast?  :)

Wow, I've never heard of that before! I wonder if anyone else in the world has that one?

I'm sure there are. There's a lot of phobias out there, many of them very strange, and a lot of people too.

Anyway, we should probably stay-on-topic folks!

It (the Stephen King film) must have given so many people a fear of clowns. I know someone who is afraid of balloons because of the noise they make when rubbed and their feel.

I saw A Nightmare of Elm Street when I was about 10 and it made me afraid of the dark for a while, really it should have been long razorblade fingernails or going to sleep but no.

stay-on-topic

This is a thread about food you are eating!

You can create a thread about phobias. You can move this discussion to the thread that can't be derailed. But, unless we have a cannibal, nobody here has eaten a clown. Take the phobias elsewhere.

I am about to eat a whole tilapia on a bed of rice with red and green peppers, onions, and spring onions.

They may have eaten a clownfish, become ill and ended with a phobia. Anyone?

I may not be afraid of peppers but if I eat one I become ill. I might run around the room tho if you try to get me to eat one.

 

I had a cheese burger and side-salad for my tea. Nice time im going to get mince, eggs and all the other ingredients and make It from scratch. A burger with homemade chips and side-salad is delicious.

Do you deliver?  Sounds yum, and I can eat it while I'm reading the books from the new lending library over in the other thread :0

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Might be a bit cold and unedible. Sorry. Very easy to make tho and well worth the time spent. Would highly recommend doing so.

 

Discovered the joys of mustard a few months back and the lift it gives to a burger is quite something - mustard, mayo and tomato sauce on the toasted bun, onions are a must.

Mustard is awesome and so versatile.  I particularly like the French Dijon mustard or English on cold meats.

Yip, Scotland is renown for its Deep-Fried Mars, we have also had Deep-Fried Cadburys Cream Egg and a few others. Never been tempted personally, far too many calories.

A pizza crunch (a pizza encased in batter and then deep-fried) is amazing but incredibly unhealthy - have had it once and thought I was going to die. We know how to offer high class food up here.

I thought of your comment when I came across this Buzzfeed page on British foods, many of them Scottish. Some of them look really good!
