Jumbo Shrimp in the candy aisle.

I was stocking the candy at the Chevron today when I noticed this package, and immediately thought “King size minis?”

The English teacher LOVES it! Bravo!
My favorite oxymorons, however, are "holy war" and "Liberty Jail."

"Holy war", that's a good one. Granted, I've only been going to church for 2 or 3 years now, but in my short time I have never heard anything promoting killing in the name of God. S'matter of fact, I've got pretty much just the opposite message.
I have to admit though, I've never heard of "Liberty Jail". But I have always loved "Congressional Ethics".

Congressional Ethics. Funny!!
Liberty Jail is kind of a Mormon thing. Joseph Smith was imprisoned for 6 months in a jail in a town called Liberty. Hence, it was known as Liberty Jail. Apparently, the irony was lost on the townsfolk.
Others I like:
fresh echoes
military intelligence
athletic scholarship
original copy

But Holy War is still the most ironic ever. :)

Good grief, I've actually met and bought a couple of the king (Richard Lederer of such seriously funny, and
genuine imitation never
found missing, in Max's blog!
This is,
almost exactly what I needed this morning! Thanks Writer and Max!
BTW do you sell, plastic glasses at the Chevron!!!

Karen - Yeah, we sell plastic cups, we're three blocks from Westminster College. Sell a lot of them on the weekends.
