Time for a little fun.

An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which two words with opposing meanings are used together intentionally for effect. And some might even make you scratch your head.

~~Act naturally
~~Found missing
~~Genuine imitation
~~Airline food
~~Good grief
~~Same difference
~~Almost exactly
~~Government organization
~~Sanitary landfill
~~Alone together
~~Legally drunk
~~Silent scream
~~Living dead
~~Small crowd
~~Soft rock
~~Military intelligence
~~Software documentation
~~New classic
~~Sweet sorrow
~~Passive aggression
~~Taped live
~~Clearly misunderstood
~~Peace force
~~Temporary tax increase
~~Computer jock
~~Plastic glasses
~~Terribly pleased
~~Political science
~~Tight slacks
~~Definite maybe
~~Pretty ugly
~~Diet ice cream
~~Working vacation
~~Exact estimate
~~Microsoft Works

So did some make you pause and consider? Or giggle?
