Hyperbole

Hyperbole is using exaggeration for emphasis. Hyperbole is used to make writing and speaking more interesting. He was so big, he used a tree trunk as a toothpick. His brain was the size of a small ant. Her shoes looked like two boats. Some hyperboles are so common, they have become clichés. I am so hungry I could eat a horse. Hyperbole is often meant to be funny. Try your hand at writing some hyperboles.
