Jon: Garfield, you sleep too much.
Garfield: I have a condition.
Jon: And there's a name for that.
Garfield: The fear of sweat.
The author writes:
After looking at lists of fears, it comes as no surprise to me that the fear of sweat - actually the fear of excessive sweating - is a real fear, or that it has a name. In fact, the only surprise is that it doesn't have the usual "-phobia" ending. Cursory research (consisting of looking at the Google results page without clicking links) suggests that people have gotten over it somehow; if you actually have this condition or know someone who does, well, it's something to look into further than I did.
