John Gallagher on Twitter: "Lot of misinformation about this today. For clarity: I live in Britain and mince on toast is served at every meal"
Eater.com posts comically misinformed video about some kind of imaginary brit comfort food. John Gallagher's response thread is a virtuoso performance

Is Trypophobia a Real Phobia? | Popular Science
ie. "fear of small, clustered holes". Sounds like it's not so much a "phobia" as some kind of innate, visceral disgust response; I get it. 'As for who actually made the word up, that distinction probably belongs to a blogger in Ireland named Louise, Andrews says. According to an archived Geocities page, Louise settled on "trypophobia" (Greek for "boring holes" + "fear") after corresponding with a representative at the Oxford English Dictionary. Louise, Andrews and trypophobia Facebook group members have petitioned the dictionary to include the word. The term will need to be used for years and have multiple petitions and scholarly references before the dictionary accepts it, Andrews says. I, for one, would prefer to forget about it forever.'
