Thanks taller8. Let's keep them together with the other ones so here are George Carlin's oxymorons

• Mandatory options
• Mutual differences
• Non dairy creamer
• Open secret (how about this one for magicians)
• Resident alien
• Silent alarm
• Sport sedan
• Wireless cable
• Mercy killing
• Lethal assistance
• Business ethics
• Friendly fire
• Genuine veneer
• Full time daycare
• Death benefits
• Holy war
• Waste of time
