    That's the fear of long words.

    Stupid name for a phobia if you ask me.

    hmmm...national spelling bee is right around the corner, isn't it?

    When I first saw the word I figured it was the fear of hippos, 70s rocks bands featuring Ronnie Montrose and any equipment with pedals.

    The phobia is more stupider than the name.

    You know, I've been trying to learn new words for a while now. Maybe I'll try watching it tomorrow.
