Quarter Oxymoron
Wednesday, May 28, 2003
I'm at a parking meter, putting in more money while waiting for Kinko's to finish a job. I just put in a 'New York' quarter, and noticed that the slogan/moto on the back says "Gateway to Freedom".

Call me picky, but isn't that an oxymoron? How can freedom have a gateway? Doesn't that imply that it has a fence?

If you like it, please share it.
