Galeophobia (fear of sharks) and Maskaphobia (fear of masks).

Even though the fish are blue, they make me crave Swedish Gummy Fish.

Two things.

1. There are no masks in this
2. You'd be scared too if you saw shark fins swimming around your raft, again scared is not a phobia and fear of this is not irrational.

Come on boots you can do better.

I was originally thinking of the fear of costumes (like a lot of little kids have), that's why I dressed up the three men too. But after some googling, I found out that there actually wasn't a specific term for that. Maskaphobia is the fear of mascots, masks, and costumes (really it's mostly masks, but people with a fear of costumes get lumped in there too). I thought using that one would be better than making up my own specific costume fear.

And I can't do better because:
1. I'm not very bright.
2. I think this design is good and I'm standing behind it.

I am learning all these new words in this derby... I definitely have Galeophobia. I remember I watch Jaws and then the next day had to swim in the ocean for Jr. Lifeguards...

anyway, enough of my life story... Great job boots. I find this really appealing!

1. The fishies are wearing masks.
2. Point taken, but you're splitting hairs.

As far as doing better goes, your screen name is grammatically incorrect. Or perhaps you're kidding, right?

Imposter Pete was Unprepared for the Almost Human Nightmare Cuckoo Clock. The Walrus and Eggmen were the Height of Envy at the Monkey Bar. See the DJ spinning records on a Flora Phonograph while simultaneously playing Rock, Paper, Scissorhold.

They do look dubious. Seems sensible for people out for a float in a tub.


Merry Christmas shirtwoot!
