Oxymoron and Dysphemism of the Week

It’s been a crazy week, so I decided to which up my normal journal entries.
Dysphemism: a derogatory or unpleasant term used instead of a pleasant or neutral one
Oxymoron: a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction
Can you think of other ones? Do you use dysphemism or oxymora more?
Oxymoron of the Week:
– Ice Cold Water
– Modern Classic
– Adult Children
– Euphemistic Dysphemism
Dysphemisms of the Week:
– Gas Guzzler
– Muffin Top
– Snail Mail
– Give em the axe
– Nutcase
