|I looked this up so nobody else has to - does everybody know you can type "define:" followed by whatever in Google?|
"Floccinaucinihilipilification is the act or habit of esteeming or describing something as worthless, or making something to be worthless by said means."
Back to the thread - OP I must take strong exception to your "Toronto Life" as an oxymoron - you are engaging in floccinaucinihilipilification of my home town!
Ditto for "Barenaked Ladies" - although I'll give you that the term barenaked is REDUNDANT.
I've got one that I haven't heard anybody else use anywhere anytime:
"hopelessly in love"
IMHO, falling in love is the most hope-FUL thing anybody can do - that doesn't involve jumping out of an airplance or off of a bridge tied to a bigass rubber band!

|OP I have to disagree with you about "comfortable bra" - I wear an H cup and I own one - it just cost me an arm and a leg.|
I will, however, give you "comfortable shoes" - for all the women out there - I can't believe there are women getting surgery on their feet so they can get INTO those narrow toed shoes! What are they thinking???
