Oxymorons

Hi, Folks. A post on another forum got me laughing and I was too kind to hammer the guy. Basically it was "I need some nice mudflaps for my E55" and my first thought was, that's an oxymoron! On any of the MBZ cars (G and M class, you're excused) there's no such thing as a "nice mudflap". [:)]

So, besides the obvious ones: military intelligence, legal ethics, etc. what other oxymorons can we all come up with?

Exactly, everyone knows it would be superfluous.

As a side note, I am quite fond of the Monty Pythons, but they are so witty that it is very doubtful that they really were brits anyway.

I'm surprised you understood it.

Here's two:

American irony
Jewish modesty
