Everyday oxymora

Or oxymorons if you prefer.

Started in despair at once again hearing a bookmaker's radio advertisment and its mealy mouthed advice for punters to "gamble responsibly". Fuckers.

This government is no slouch at dreaming up self contradictory slogans too, and the orange utan Trump utters them on a daily basis. Kindly list offending phrases here.

'gamble responsibly'? ... how's about a job vacancy for 'ethical hacker'?

thisonehasalittlehat - 29 Oct 2020 08:17:49 (#3 of 60)

Ethical hackers are a thing though.

TauCeti - 29 Oct 2020 08:36:59 (#4 of 60)

thought is an oxymoron though; ethically breaking the law and all that... a honest thief kind of thing.

Ethical hackers don't break the law. They have been tasked by the company to find flaws, generally using social engineering, penetration testing, or just software bugs/vulnerabilites. There are even aggregators such as HackerOne to disclose vulnerabilities to companies and get a bug bounty.
