I suppose so. Touche'.
By the way,did y'all know that "oxymoron" came from the words "Oxford" and "moron", because it
was a contradiction in terms to call someone who graduated from such a prestigious school a
dumby. (The "y" in the middle is the Spanish word for "and".) I know it's true, because that's
what the guys who hung around Buddy's Pool hall when I was growing up used to say.
