Mark, here's what I have. Judie J

Oxymorons would also be good source of ideas---those seemingly incongruous
                words that are used together like 'jumbo shrimp,' 'working
vacation,' and 'pretty ugly.' The following web sites that have
gobs of oxymorons .
                www.oxymorons.com
                http://www.ethanwiner.com/oxymoron.html
                http://www.jokesoup.com/oxymoronswo.htm
                http://www.specsci.com/donspage/htmldocs/oxymoron.htm
                http://www.topskills.com/oxymorons.htm

                Camouflage Visual Puns
                        Bev Doolittle's camouflage paintings were the first
                                                use of this term. The image
of another entity, such as a horse and rider, lies
within a natural landscape. Seeing pictures in clouds is
                the kind of visual play that spawns this kind of pun.
