One Choice… And More Oxymorons

There are plenty of oxymorons out there that we use on a daily basis.  No, an oxymoron isn’t an insult, people, relax!  It’s a combination of words that contradict each other.

One of our favorites is “one choice”.  If you can only pick one, then it’s not really a “choice” is it?  At least when it comes to textbooks it’s “your choice”, right?

The folks at Publications International, Ltd. put together a list of their 15 favorite oxymorons like, “jumbo shrimp” and “original copy.”  As you read the list you realize just how contradictory some of our favorite phrases and sayings really are!

Which are your favorite oxymorons?

    My most favorite oxymoron is when police say- “You got 1 choice. Either you cooperate with me, or I’m placing you under arrest.”
