QotD: Oxymoron

Question: What's your favorite oxymoron?

My Answer: Today I heard the phrase "critical praise" and it just sounded odd. Not a true oxymoron, because by "critical" it means "from someone or a group of someones who is/are critic(s)," but it still sounded odd. My absolute favorites are often computing terms that pop up from time to time. Y'know, like "advanced user." 🙂
