    over the past several years,i've heard the term 'oxymoron'.I always thought this term has to mean 1.a punk- rock groupie..or..2.acne medication for dummies....or....after today visiting my bank,could it be 3.observing thier vault door wide-open but at the same time,they put security chains on all thier ball point pen's at the customer desk.which one of my definitions fit this term?:confused:

    #3 would be it. An Oxymoron is a term where the first and last are incompatible with each other, such as "cruel kindness" or "make haste slowly".

    generally noun-noun, noun-adjective, or adjective-noun combinations that present the objective audience with an image of mutual exclusivity. To my wife, "relaxing fishing".
