    so not true!
    the word “oxymoron” IS AN OXYMORON!!!!!

    from the greek words oxus and morus:

    oxus meaning sharp and/or pointy
    morus meaning dull and/or dulled.

    sharply dull: “just war”between opposite words in my opinion.

    if in the case that there WERE NO oxymorons:

    we couldn’t say someone was looking “awfully good” tonight…without looking a fool ourselves!
    we couldn’t say that we had “virgin sex” last night…without being called a “gay woman!”
    we couldn’t say that something had “complex simplicity”…without being called “sharply dull!”
