Arachibutyrophobia: the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth






What's so scary about it?
Don't people have anything better to worry about? Presumably if you're one of these nutters (oh what a beautiful, unintended pun) you despise the stuff, so what's the likelihood of suddenly finding it stuck to the inside of your gob? If you're that terrified of it, don't buy it. Talk about stupid.

What do the scientists say?
According to phobia-busting firm CTRN (Change That Right Now) this is a condition that causes 'untold distress' to countless people every year. But thankfully they're offering a solution - for just $2497 you'll be rid of the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth forever.

$2497? There, in a nutshell, I think we've found the answer. False.
