@r3tr0r0ck3r:
Yes.
The name of the phobia should clue people in that this is kinda BS.
Anatidaephobia is just fear of ducks. Larson came up with the brilliance the article is trying to talk about with attempted authority.

damn. I didn`t know there was a real name for it.All this time,I`ve been calling it "Duckaphobia".I`ve had a phobia of all things waterfowl,since I was born. No kidding. I have to look away when the AFLAC commercial comes on.

This is not a real condition. I mean, maybe there are a couple people out there, but this was from a Gary Larson comic, it even said in the author`s notes that he looked up Latin roots and made up the word.

That was the second stupidest fear I`ve ever heard of.

Arachibutyrophobia is the most stupid.

@giveChase: It`s not insurance, it goes along with insurance. They give you money if you get sick or injured. I remember they give you like $10,000 if you lose a toe.

I remember reading this in a Gary Larson "The Far Side" collection. Pretty sure he said he made the word up for the cartoon.



Nice ad placement though!
