Though worth more, dimes are smaller than pennies and nickels. Crazy!

Had a biopsy done. The pathologist reported that the sample was unremarkable, which is a remark on the sample, making the sample remarkable.

Though not an oxymoron, I thought I'd share because I found it interesting (use of the word unremarkable, that is, not the biopsy, though I am relieved that I don't have cancer, but that's really of no interest to you, is it now? And you probably think the anecdote is mundane as well. And in reading it over it is. It is a quite an unremarkable anecdote. But I'm going to post it anyway. My apologies.)

George Carlin used these in his old act on this topic. He would also add the word "inflammable" to the list, saying "it either flamms or it doesn't".
