In giving love there is an equal grace.
Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."

The best one: near miss
Why do they call a close call a "near miss"? If they "nearly missed", wouldn't they have hit?

Posted:The braille on drive-up ATMs actually has a reason. Blind people ride in Taxi's.
That and ATMs are mass producted so the walk-ups use the same key pads as the drive-ups.

George Carlin does a great skit on things like this. He's where the "near miss" one was popularized.

Posted:"Final Exam" (I've been taking "final" exams for years...and yet I keep having more exams!)
"Civil Servant" ("civil master" would be more appropriate)
"Semi-truck" (Jeez! I pale to think what a full truck would be)
"Traffic flow"
"Vegetarian meatballs"
"Civil rights"
"British cuisine"
"Australian wine"
"Internal Revenue Service" (some "service"!)
"Pacifist activist"
"Loyal opposition"

I also have some redundancies, which are the opposite of oxymorons.

"Free gift"
"Dumb blonde" (C@ntus's "peroxymoron")
"fluid-filled cyst" (by definition a cyst is fluid-filled)
"Dirty politician"
"Financial broker"
"End result"
"Painful sore"
"Bed rest"

and my all-time favorite: "disgruntled postal worker"
