Jumbo Shrimp: And Other Almost Perfect Oxymorons and Contradictory Expressions That Make Absolute Sense by Warren S. Blumenfeld Book ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook Review
In chatty style, Blumenfeld, a Georgia State professor, discusses oxymorons, which he defines as "contradictory expressions that make absolute sense." Many of his examples are obvious winners: corporate family, initial deadline, school lunch, and downtown Los Angeles. Some, though, reflect oxymorons of a different variety, such as always occasionally, smile out loud, wildly silent, and Little League. There is also a chapter on geographic oxymorons.

Freezer Burn The late Jeff MacNelly was a fantastic editorial cartoonist. In Freezer Burn: Oxymorons and Other Contradictions of Everyday Life he has been enlisted by Laine Vilensky and David Holmes to bring to life – in his trademark pen-and-ink style illustrations – oxymorons such as Civil War and Martial Bliss. Some others featured in the book are Rap Music, Great Depression, Educational Television, Gourmet Pizza, and Nuclear Safety. Thanks to these hilarious cartoons, you will never again misunderstand the meaning of these silly contradictions used in everyday language and life.
