Oxymorons are interesting


Editor, The Commercial:

Oxymorons are some of my favorite thoughts. Here are a few I have pondered:

Did you ever notice combining the words “The” and “IRS” spells “Theirs?” Why do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front?

Why do some folks order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a Diet Coke? Why do banks leave vault doors open and chain ink pens to the counter? Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

Why don’t we ever see the headline “Psychic wins lottery”? Why is “abbreviated” such a long word? Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don’t they make the whole plane out of that stuff? If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world … then He made the world round!

Can I get an Amen?
