“I’m not homophobic. I’m not afraid of my house!”

A person who is “homophobic” has a fear of homosexuals, but there’s a joke:
 
“I’m not homophobic. I’m not afraid of my house!”
 
English comedian and actor Peter Kay has told the joke since at least 2004, and the line has been printed on an image.
