Oxymorons

One of my favorite types of words is the oxymoron! What is an oxymoron? It is a contradiction. THe word oxymoron itself is a oxymoron. In Greek, oxy means sharp and moron means dull. Here are a few more funny oxymorons.
Non working mother
a little pregnant
awefully nice
a clean boy
a civil war (civil meaning nice)
a dull roar
easy labor
junk food
my worst favorite
no-good do-gooder
pure dust
somewhat legal
and my favorite, THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK
