I have several fears, both everyday and irrational, but this one has
actually landed me in the shrink's office for its sheer stupidity: I am
terrified of the Ocean Sunfish. More specifically, I am absolutely
convinced that one day, a three-metre-long Sunfish will fall from the sky
and crush me to death. This fear doesn't apply to any other animal, even
those much larger than the Sunfish; I think that this is because the damn
thing looks bloody unnatural in addition to being huge. It's flat,
disc-shaped and googly-eyed... Ugh. It's a sea alien.

I don't have a fear of sun-fish, but I do hate them. It is such an ugly creature, and it doesn't even resemble a fish! It looks like, I don't even know...but it shouldn't exist.
