This thread is an instant classic!

Seriously, everyone has a favorite oxymoron. What's yours?

I've always liked "compassionate conservative."

A more obscure but nonetheless hilarious oxymoron hails from the doom swamp of 1970s feminism. Betty Friedan, author of The Feminine Mystique, once referred to the anti-woman environment of the nuclear family home as a "comfortable concentration camp." For three and a half decades, this quote has been making even people who agree with Betty Friedan say, "Now what the hell does that even mean?"
