This is a question Phobias

What gives you the heebie-jeebies?

It's a bit strong to call this a phobia, but for me it's the thought of biting into a dry flannel. I've no idea why I'd ever want to or even get the opportunity to do so, seeing as I don't own one, but it makes my teeth hurt to think about it. *ewww*

Tell us what innocent things make you go pale, wobbly and send shivers down your spine.

Heh.
This isn't exactly a phobia, just a button to press.

There's a certain recent member than can be made to go spastic if you use one certain word.

PAEDOPHILE!!

I've had a couple of drunken Sunday afternoons drinking with her when this subject has come up.

Check replies for explanation.

If she bites that is...

Cheers

BASTARDISATION
THAT'S WHAT IT IS. BOILS MY FECKIN' PISS!!

Many English words *come* from the Greek language. Especially the medical ones:
neurology: nevra=nerves + logikos = the study of.
gynaecology: gynaeka = woman, study of.
colostomy (my favourite): kolos = arse + stoma = mouth / opening

Then there are the likes of francoplile, meaning one who likes/loves all things French.

NOW my bowels are really getting in an uproar!!!

CUNTING GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

Paedophile.

Paidia = children

Philos = friend / friendly.

THE CORRECT TRANSLATION MEANS "ONE WHO LIKES (AND IS FRIENDLY TO) CHILDREN.

I AM THEREFORE A FUCKING PAEDOPHILE IN THE CORRECT SENSE OF THE WORD BECAUSE I LIKE CHILDREN. I WORK WITH THEM AND HAVE ONE OF MY OWN.

*breaks into sweat*

(Yeah, I know, "pigs sweat, men perspire and ladies glow" - I am sweating like a pig in anger!

*fumes* and *stinks* simultaneously

Now see what you've done?
I have to go home to her in that mood.

Bastard.

And "phobia"
is a Greek word.
"Beta" is pronounced "veta", so, really, phovia = fear.

*performs deep breathing exercises, NOT involving Marlboro*

Eeeeek, Legless you blighter!
Is "lighter" with a "b"
*sigh*

Still excellent goading!

All in good fun.

Sorry Tourette's, as much as I think you are pretty neato, that was funny.

Oh, and mean. A really mean thing to do!
*giggles more*

^Tourette's^
Agreed! Paedophile is completely the wrong word to use for the concept people use it for. A better term would be 'paederast'(= paidi-child + erastis-lover), but people use that specifically gay boy loving. Pisses me off too!

Also, Gynaecology - Woman arse studies, hurr hurr hurr.

Call them what they are...
Child molesters. They don't deserve a scientific term to describe them...

It don't bother me none but...
...I know someone who fumes every time they hear word television.

- suitable pause -

because "tele" is from the Greek, and "vision" comes from the Latin!!! It's like bolting the back end of a Ford to the front end of a BMW or something.

Ah well, see you later folks. I'm off.
