Nonconformity!

Happy Saturday!  How about some oxymoronica to start the weekend?  According to Dr. Mardy Grothe, the word oxymoronica is used “to describe quotations that contain imcompatible or incongruous elements.”  Here’s a quotation from Bill Vaughn on nonconformity that exemplifies this point beautifully.

“If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it’s another nonconformist who doesn’t conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.”
