So, you’re just coming to terms with fear of buttons, when another potential phobia rears its terrifying head.
Anatidaephobia. The fear of being watched by a duck.
My lovely fan, Eliza Wimperis, has alerted me to this word/concept/life-threatening mental illness, and I can’t quite get it out of my head. Why a duck? as the Marx Brothers might say. I feel quite strongly that all those Americans waving the flag for intelligent design should be confronted, forcibly, with Anatidaephobia. So, let me get this straight. A greater being created the duck, then the human, and then in a moment of divine whimsy….well, need I go on?
You can see why the idea of writing a book on the subject of God as a mad mercurial teenager appeals to me so strongly. The evidence is everywhere.
