Plain ... Beautiful ... What Is It?

I was surfing a forum on the web/internet/whatever last month when I saw this statement from a guy to his gal:

Yeah, it's plain to see, baby, you're beautiful ...

When I read that, I thought WTF? Plain and beautiful are two different things: Very different.

Damn. Just another example of cliched and lazy writing from automatic thinking.

Now if he had said It's easy to see, baby, you're beautiful, it would still be a cliche. But at least it wouldn't be contradictory.
