Oxymorons

 

I think one of the funniest forwarded messages I get on the Internet are somebody's list of top oxymorons.  Oxymorons, in case you do not know, is a figure of speech or two words used together that have opposite meanings like "cruel kindness".  We all need to laugh at something in this life even if it is just at the expressions people use in everyday talk.  Maybe laughing at such expressions makes me a wise fool.  (Did I just give you another oxymoron?) 

 Top 50 OXYMORONS:
