Sentence: Raoul was a moxiemoron when it came to matters of driving and courtship. He wanted to get married, but picked women who didn't. He wanted to get his driver's license, but failed to pass his test, because he did not study the highway code. Was he doomed to always spend his life with just a learner's license? Not quite qualified and driving the wrong way on the one way street of love?

Etymology: Moxie (fortitude and determination) & Oxymoron (conjoining contradictory terms) & Moron (a person of subnormal intelligence)
