Infophagia

Here, read this list of words I learned from the article “The Woman Who Vomited Frogs,” which some trickster snuck into my Firefox favorites toolbar.
  • pagophagia (ice eating)
  • xylophagia (wooden toothpick eating)
  • coniophagia (a lust for dust)
  • geophagia (clay or dirt eating)
  • amylophagia (the consumption of laundry starch and paste)
  • coprophagia (feces eating)
Don't confuse that last one with "capraphagia," which would be goat eating. Oh, and the article is kind of interesting too.
