- Pseudopod, from the Greek pseudes (false) pod (foot).Add to it phobia - an intense, irrational, unrealistic fear of an object, an event, or a feeling.The result is a fear of false feet...in my case, fear of overly large feet - platform shoes. :-)
Man, those shoes are causing my pseudopodophobia to act up again...keep her away from me!
