Oxymorons. It sounds like names to call all our politicans or the CEOs of some of the bail out companies, but it's a combination of contradictory words. For instance, "cruel kindness" or "black light". How many oxymorons can you think of?

I've seen some comments calling something 'false hope' lately.  Would that be an oxymoron?  Either you have hope or you don't.  Even if it is based on faulty logic, it is still a hope.  Yeh, there are a lot of others around, they just aren't popping up for me right now.

Gee, I always thought an oxymoron was a name for a clumsy idiot.  www.aarp.org/community/editor/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/wink_smile.gif" alt="" />


 


Return to the subject, "happily married" may be an oxymoron for 50% of the marriages.  www.aarp.org/community/editor/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/sad_smile.gif" alt="" />

Carolyn I was trying to come up with one, only thing I could think of was the Amish saying of wonderful good, but I don't think that is what you were aiming for, have to think a bit harder on this one!

The one I always think of is Jumbo Shrimp.  Have to give some thought to others I met!
