I hate hyperbole more than anything else in the whole world.

Hyperbole is the very worst sin in the world of language.~

Is that the sarcasm punctuation I see? Nice

p.s. Dane Cook annoys me as well, I just thought that particular quote was appropriate. I can’t deny him that.

I die a thousand agonizing deaths any time even a hint of hyperbole makes the slightest vibration in my inner ear.

I user hyperboles more than anything else.

As in, “It took you a million years to get here”
or, “I ran a billion miles”

I thought you said “hypermile” and got all excited.
My heart was going a million miles a minute.

I do all the advertising and graphic design for a local farm. Hyperbole is my life. Hyperbole = Paycheck

This thread has made me laugh more than any thread I’ve
ever encountered, bar none, anywhere, any time, involving
any human or other types of being. I can’t find the words to
say how wonderful a time I’ve been having. I really can’t.
