Thought I'd start a thread where we could list all the redundancies that we could think of:

Two twins
Currupt politician
Sleazy lawyer
High maintenance yuppie
Sexual trauma
Underpaid planner
Middle-managment suck-up


Feel free to add your own

One of my big pet peeves: signs that read

ATM Machine

Not too long ago, I actually saw a sign reading "ATM Teller Machine", which means "Automatic Teller Machine Teller Machine".

Another pet peeve: hot water heater. It's really a cold water heater, when you think of it.
