Fear of studying, specifically fear of studying at the Homer D. Babbidge Library at the University of Connecticut at Storrs, UCONN. Less frequently used to describe a person who purports to be well read, but who in fact has never read the classics and reads nothing but modern cheesy novels.
Fern: Chris follows Liz everywhere but the library.
Dave: Yeah that homerphobic dumbass will be lucky if he gets a 2.0 GPA.
Dexter didn’t believe me when I told him Duckman’s son was named after a character in the Iliad, proving him to be a complete homerphobe.

Dont forget the fear of being hit on the head by one of the loose bricks from the faulty construction of the Homer library leading to the recently remodoled library being wrapped in plastic and scaffolding protecting the entrances for the course of our stay in Storrs.

P.S. Speaking of Homer et. al., If I recall correctly about El Duderino the only book he read for classes were Joyce's Ulysses and the Bible. If he read the Iliad it was definietly for pleasure i.e. the man love of Achilles and Patroclus. Not that he didnt do well he just didnt read the books.
