The word oxymoron comes from Greek: oxy, meaning sharp and moron meaning dull, and so is an oxymoron itself.
Civil war.

Old news.

Free trade.

Now then.

Good grief!

Pretty ugly.

Only choice.

Act naturally.

Social disease.

Jumbo shrimp.

Industrial action.

Honest politician.

Deafening silence.

Military intelligence.
Editor’s note: Yes I know that many of these are not true oxymora, but are, in fact, ironically artificial interpretations of well known word juxtapositions.
