    what is the word for...?

    Is there a word for a sentence that is contradictory, such as "I'm having fun at work"?

    Inconsistency?
    Incongruity?

    Oh, and having fun at work is not inconsistent... it's dangerous!

    A paradox. Said by those who hate their jobs and can't believe some people actually love what they do.
