Spotted a phrase recently on DIY's blog cabin that is a true oxymoron. George Carlin would have loved it. I remember him doing a riff on oxymorons like; Military Intelligence, Jumbo Shrimp etc.......... This one is Modern Rustic as a description for a fireplace. Modern is like new or up to date. Rustic is something else again. In Wisconsin they have Rustic Roads, which means they are old roads that are no longer maintained on a regular basis. Just put up a sign saying Rustic Road and their ass is covered in case someone loses a major suspension part on the road.
