Aibohphobia is as old as mankind itself.

Some Christian historians suggest it began in the garden of eden when Eve got "mad at Adam".

Secular historians claim "mom" is to blame.

In modern times outbreaks of Aibohphobia have been noted at Martini Lounges with the introduction of a single "evil olive".

Aibohphopia also knows no cultural or political boundaries. Inuit oral history speaks of "kutatuk" with the invention of the first "kayak".

More recently, a mass outbreak of Aibohphobia was noted in the United States when a Fox News broadcaster referred to Oprah Winfrey's endorsement of Barak Obama as a "star comedy by democrats".

Clearly Aibohphobia is a threat to us all.

With that in mind I have established the Cooperative Aiophobia Research Association of Canada (CARAC).

Man, this is the best idea I've had in a long time!;)

I guess aibohphobia is aibohphobia any way you look at it, but what do I know because I am "a nut for a jar of tuna".....
