Urban Dictionary: aibohphobia


The irrational fear of palindromes (words that read the same forwards and backwards).

Dude 1: Hey, what’s your name?

Dude 2: Bob.

Dude 1: AAAAAAAAAAH! *Runs and hides behind sofa*

Bob: Wow.

Dude 1: AAAAAAAAAAH! *Runs away and falls down stairs*

This completely stupid fauxbia made me laugh for some reason. There appears to be a real art to writing a successful Urban Dictionary entry. Such entries are often gratuitously vulgar, even when the term being defined is not vulgar. If I weren’t so sick, I’d try to think about it some more.
