QotD: This Totally Freaks Me Out

Do you have any phobias?
Submitted by Amirul B Ruslan.

I am absolutely terrified of octopuses. I’m afraid of all but the most harmless of marine creatures (goldfish don’t scare me but those googly-eyed black fish people keep as pets kinda freak me out), but tentacled creatures scare me to death. I can’t look at them on TV, and if someone is talking about them, I tend to subconsciously pick my feet up off of the floor and put them up in the chair or on the couch where I am sitting. (This trick doesn’t work when standing obviously) Even cartoon octopuses scare me a little bit (except for Squidward from Spongebob, since he is less of a squid than a underwater version of Bert from Sesame Street).
