He Was a Loser in More Ways than One


I head on the radio today a feature on “The Heidi & Frank Show” in which they read three stories and asked viewers to call in and pick which one was “Loser of the Week.”

The three stories:

1) A guy tried to kiss his pet poisonous cottonmouth snake near its mouth, and it bit him.

2) A guy in Buffalo, N.Y., was cited for Driving While Intoxicated — right after he left the courthouse in which he had pled guilty to Driving While Intoxicated.

3) A guy advertised on Craigslist that he had “legitimate counterfeit money” for sale. He ended up selling said money to an undercover cop and was arrested.

I actually thought the drunk driver was the biggest loser of the three, but I want to point out the moron who used an oxymoron.

Oxymoron is defined as “a combination of contradictory or incongruous words.” Jumbo shrimp, original copy, definite maybe, pretty ugly and working vacation are good examples.

So is legitimate counterfeit.

So is my brother. He attended Occidental College, which makes him an Oxy moron.

Until next time! Use the right words!
