Oxymoronic Puns

You guys seem rather creative
  [vote for,

The other day I was at a party and the term "mail-woman" was misunderstood. The term was meant to describe a female mail carrier but the somewhat drunk audience (me included) spent a half hour playing with one particulary inebriated guest's confusion. Later on in the week I recalled the experience and noticed that the term "mail-woman" seemed to be an oxymoronic pun. Its not a regular oxymoron as it needs the pun of "mail" to accomplish its oxymoronic-ness.

I love a good one-liner pun and was wondering if you good people knew of, or could think of any other oxymoronic puns.
