That's two people who've screwed up their oxymorons.

Sadly happy is not an oxymoron, because it is not a phrase that is actually used in the english language.

Okay, from here on out everybody needs to read this post:

An oxymoron (plural oxymorons or, more rarely, oxymora) is a figure of speech that combines two normally contradictory terms. Oxymoron is a loanword from Greek oxy ("sharp") and moros ("dull"). Thus the word oxymoron is itself an oxymoron.

In other words, only two words per oxymoron, both of which contradict the other one.

I read somewhere in the first page of this thread, I dont get how "Comfortable Bra" is an oxymoron. No contradictory going on there.
