Oxymoron Quotes

A very silly oxymoron is a very wise one! The statement itself is an oxymoron, albeit not a spectacular one. The bottom line is that oxymorons though stupid, take the side-splitting brilliance of a clever person to conjure one. An oxymoron is commonly identified as a figure of speech that conjoins two absolutely contradictory terms to arrive at a funny phrase. The connotations are indeed hilarious and you might often find yourself rolling on the floor with laughter after reading a few. In fact, people resort to using oxymorons in their daily conversations for comic relief. Irrespective of how conflicting the two keywords are, an oxymoron is seldom meaningless. For instance-“Always remember you're unique .. just like everyone else!” reeks of irony and infallible humor. No doubt, it expunges the basic definition of “unique”, but doesn’t fall short of coherence. Now embrace yourself for some of the irrefutably most brilliant oxymorons ever as you look down to find the content and up to uncover the context! That might’ve been an oxymoron! Or maybe not! Can you look up and down at the same time? Scroll and figure it out yourself!
