Is "that" a phrase? A sentence? Something written? Something said?
A physical object? a picture? A situation? A place? A person? An idea?

Are you referring to an incongruency between an object's name and its use? something like that?

Is the object larger than a coin? a golf ball? a basket ball? a car? a truck? an aeroplane? way bigger than all of these??

If there is a relevant oxymoron here, do you mean something self-contradictory like "deafening silence" or "positively negative"?

Is the object's oxymoronic name the one usually used for it? Is it a commonly used word? Is the name composed of two words that contradict each other? Just one word that contradicts the object?

Well, some that it might have been, were it not an object or so small... pianoforte, bittersweet, producer, sophomore, or even oxymoron itself is an oxymoron (there's another puzzle in there somewhere)..or the infamous non-word irregardless...that on is for you, Bodo. Or maybe even vegetarian meatball if we could get into two word answers, but that is another whole can of cabbage

Is it a novel?

Would you most likely find it:

On an executive's desk?
In a workshop of some kind?
In your bedroom?
In your washroom?
In your kitchen?
In the living room?
In a public place?
Some other particular place?

Is it something harmful / destructive by use? Like a weapon or explosive?

When you say it is edible, but you wouldn't recommend eating it, do you mean it is harmful when consumed? poisonous maybe? Does it smell or taste really bad?

Is the oxymoron because it tastes bad but sounds like it tastes good?
