Oxymoronic Humor!

I truly love a good oxymoron (a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction) and have upon occasion perused a copy of Oxymoronica by Dr. Mardy Grothe in search of some light entertainment.  My most recent perusal landed me in the “wit and humor” section where I found the following gems.  Enjoy!

“A bank is place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it.”  (Bob Hope)

“I figure you have the same chance of winning the lottery whether you play or not.”  (Fran Lebowitz)

“It is difficult to keep quiet if you have nothing to say.”  (Malcolm Margolin)

“It infuriates me to be wrong when I know I’m right.”  (Molière)

“I love mankind — it’s the people I can’t stand.”  (Charles M. Schulz)

“I hate intolerant people.”  (Gloria Steinem)

“There is no exception to the rule that every rule has an exception.”  (James Thurber)

The list could go on, but I think this will do for now.
