As part of Digital Spy’s continuing (and entirely worthwhile) Phobia Corner, Red Dwarf has gained the dubious honour of being cited as the source of the third phobia in the series. The phobia of the kebab phobia.
It has to be said, the fear of a kebab suddenly leaping up and trying to throttle the life out of me isn’t one that often troubles my thoughts. In fact, as a child, I was far more traumatised by Professor Lanstrom’s horrible melting zombie face from Quarantine and, funnily enough, since I first saw that episode, I’ve had this irrational fear of terrifying, melty faced zombies leaping out at me from my wardrobe or grabbing my vulnerable ankles from under my bed. Brrr.
So, to carry on from DS’s pointless and pathetic article and my equally pointless and pathetic response, has Red Dwarf inspired any irrational fears in you? What, if anything, has you yelping and screaming like a little GIRL? Come on, ‘fess up, you massive coward.
