That's very informative, Louise. I didn't know this kind of phobia until I read your blog just now.

:D By the way, I did some searching and found:

well, it's funny, isn't it?

wondering who has this phobia? and why? :D big questions I have to find the answers to.

Whoa that's a big word! Sheesh I thought that Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious was a big word! But then again....

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
