Because the English Language Is Colorfully Bland ...

oxymoron [oksi‐mor‐on] (plural ‐mora), a figure of speech that combines two usually contradictory terms in a compressed paradox, as in the word bittersweet or the phrase living death.

Here are a few favorites ... what are yours?

"Alone together"

"Jumbo shrimp" (thx, VB)

"White Chocolate" (thx DL)

"Government intelligence" (thx GWB, and many, many others, too numerous to list!)

"Microsoft Works" (thx BG)

Too funny, RG ... of course you can join with that kind of a neatly-typed blank page!

this group sounds stupidily clever, can i join?? i have a long resume of no experience...if that helps...

I thought the definition might be in order ... in case anyone thought that an oxymoron was an Oxy-moron (a mentally deficient individual with an acne problem). C'mon. SW, we can always count on you for a bit 'o "lighthearted sarcasm" (does that qualify? Let's go to the judges ....)<br />
And you're very welcome Mo2 ... it's always an honor to receive a visit from one of EP's most prolific and entertaining commentators ... so thank YOU!

thanks for sharing.

Yes, I suppose technically it should be ... but morons sounds funnier, and I thought it might get more people's attention!
