You oxymoron!

house of lime and 'the joys of teens'..


Reading the post I said out loud and laughing,


'the joys of teens! Isn't that an oxymoron...?'


The teens and I then went on to discuss Irony and Oxymorons and Sarcasm in the same 15 minute period... of course this maybe perceived with humour and experience as an Oxymoron, I guess in grammatical terms it is not. Or am I being moronic?


Over to WIKi to clarify..


An oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines two normally contradictory terms. Oxymoron is a loanword from Greek oxy ("sharp" or "pointed") and moros ("dull").
  • Deafening silence
  • Sweet sorrow
  • Forward retreat
  • Accidentally on Purpose
  • Bittersweet
  • Controlled chaos
  • Icy hot
  • Living dead
  • Open secret
  • Organized mess
  • Plastic glass
  • Same difference
Interestingly the word oxymoron is itself an oxymoron.

  1. The word oxymoron immediated brings to my mind a picture of a silly cow, if you get my drift?!

  4. My 16 year old asked me the other day what the difference was between an 'oxymoron' and a 'contradiction of words'.

  15. Hi Saz -
    There is always something fun going on over here! I so enjoyed your interview with David that I thought of you immediately for a wonderful award. Have some time to stop by so I can pass the baton to you? Congratulations!

  16. Oh we have them here. The most frequent oxymoron in our house is apparently "optional homework".

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
