Cheeky Irony in squished-vocabulary

HippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobiaThe fear of long words. Is literally the hippopotamus– and monster-related fear of very long words.

  • An extension of sesquipedalian with monstrum “monster” and a truncated, misspelled form of hippopotamus, intended to exaggerate the length of the word itself and the idea of the size of the words being feared; combined with phobia. Hippopoto-Monstro-sesquipedalio-phobia
  • It is unlikely that this 15-syllable contrivance is ever used purely for its meaning as it is an extension to exaggerate the meaning and ”create irony” 
  • The term sesquipedaliophobia is recognized in formal writing, while the four-syllable phrase “fear of long words” is certainly worth considering

Oh my!

Funny word alert: Arachibutyrophobia. Look that shit up!! LoL…

I call it "word vomit"

I’m not random. I’ve just mastered the ability to spontaneously burst out nonsense.
