OXYMORONS

What is your favorite oxymoron?

I have many, but I think my favorite is "giant shrimp." Especially with some melted butter and shrimp sauce.

Play nice, now.

Cleaning party. Those are two words that absolutely should never go together. There is nothing fun about cleaning.

LOL at Fudypatootie!

As a child, it took me years before I got this joke:
"You're pretty dirty"
"I'm even prettier clean!"

'Pretty ugly' is a better oxymoron though.

I was a 'permanent substitute' for a while - figure that one out!

Not sure if it's an oxymoron or just redundant, but everyone I know says "hot water heater." If it's hot already, you don't need a heater. Saw it that way in a math reading problem this week.

Deja vu all over again...

Here's a little tidbit from a book I've been working on.

An oxymoron is a combination of contradictory words. Grammarians remind us the term originally referred to phrases that were intentionally contradictory for rhetorical effect, such as “bittersweet” or “a definite maybe.” “Jumbo shrimp,” for example, is technically not an oxymoron because “shrimp” refers to the marine crustacean, not the derogatory term for a small person. However, an oxymoron is now synonymous, in common usage, with a “contradiction in terms.” You can be a smart ass and tell everyone that incorrectly calling something an oxymoron is a grammatical misspeak, or you can recognize that oxymorons can be seriously funny, and whining about them is pretty ugly.

Not an oxymoron -- but in the redundancy department -- I cringe when I hear someone trying to be fancy and using the phrase "from whence he came." {{{ shudder }}}
