75+ Hyperbole Examples That Will Literally Kill You Because They’re That Awesome

A hyperbole is a literary device that let’s you say the most ridiculous things just for emphasis. It’s so much fun to craft a statement that’s not meant to be taken literally because it’s out-of-this-world crazy. For instance, you might tell your bestie that you love her more than life itself. Or you might tell your significant other that they’re the dollop of whipped cream on the milkshake of existence. Below is a long list of yet more awesome examples of hyperboles.
