Paradoxes for Oxymorons

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 6:00 PM

"This poem is concerned with language on a very plain level."

— "Paradoxes and Oxymorons" by John Ashbery,
quoted here in the post Take Your Pick of Dec. 16, 2011.

"The problem is a paradox of the veridical  type,
because the correct result (you should switch doors)
is so counterintuitive it can seem absurd,
but is nevertheless demonstrably true."

— Wikipedia on the Monty Hall problem.
