Say what ? Have you ever actually looked at the way we talk ? The things we say , the phrases we use ? Maybe it is high time we did , lol , let me give you some examples , and I am sure you will giggle as much as I did while writing this and you will also wonder how in the world these all came to be in general use ( tho who he is I do not know lol ) .
Let’s start with A Fine Mess Say what ? how can a mess be fine ? who thought this little phrase made any sense at all ? What planet were they on ? Next we have A little pregnant …huh ? either you are pregnant or you are not there is no in between no , ohh it’s ok I’m just a little pregnant …sheesh . Then there is Awfully Good ?? huh ? Lol to me it is either awful or it is good you cannot have it both ways ..can you ?? We all know the main 1 we all giggle at Customer Service ?? lol yeah right if you say so , but have you ever tried to get said customer service ? lol you may get it eventually but boy it can take forever to get … and it may not be what we wanted at all in the end .
So obviously we are talking about oxymorons and boy are there a lot of them you could not write enough blogs to cover them all so will just cover some of the funnier ones and still wonder just what genius came up with these little gems . Must have had way too much time on his hands or was just bored silly and decided to make life just that little bit more awkward . Well he sure did that because when these little gems come up we always have to stop and either just giggle or ignore it or ( my favourite ) lol, hit someone !! Arggh lol they can pop up in the most annoying situations so yes it does make you want to hit the pest that used it .
Accidentally on Purpose lol now there is a beauty is it accidental or is it on purpose ? Lol you cannot have it both ways trust me it just does not work like that it is 1 or the other not both . Now of course we can all appreciate this 1 Bitter Sweet ? Say what ? lol it is again 1 or the other , it is either bitter or sweet not both as 1 of the flavours will drown out the other as it should . Next on the list when you first look at it is impossible Boneless Ribs ?? huh ? how can ribs be boneless when a rib is a bone ? Lol got to love the way that makes me giggle each time i see it as on first glance it just looks all wrong as do almost all of these oxymorons , lol the point is in the name here I think.
Controlled Chaos lol huh ? How can it be chaos if it is controlled ? Can you please tell me how chaos can ever be controlled ? lol it’s very name implies it is uncontrollable so just how can you say it is controlled ? Also tell me about an Educated Guess ? Either it is a guess or it is educated one more time you cannot have it both ways tho it seems people think they can , it is like The Same Difference …lol yeah right …
So the more we look at what we call the English language the sillier it seems to be , and we seriously wonder why people have trouble understanding it and that is without adding in all these so called new words people are making up which infuriate me so much . Hate them so much as all they are , are words chopped in half mostly because people are becoming too lazy to use the whole word so chop it off , and it just sounds awful . Anyway enough is too much now lol ….
EVERYBODY SHUT UP! THIS IS IMPORTANT! When I close my eyes, I can’t see.
