EXAGGERATIONS-HYPERBOLE LORE

(1) THE VILLAGE BOOZER MADE THE LOCAL BREWERY GO ON A 24-HOUR
SHIFT.
(2) THERE'S ENOUGH POETRY ON THE BOY'S WASHROOM WALLS TO PUT
SHAKESPEARE OUT OF BUSINESS!

Submitter comment: I HEARD THE FIRST EXAGGERATION AT WORK FROM A BEER DRIVER.
THE SECOND EXAGGERATION I HEARD IN SCHOOL WHEN THE MAINTENANCE
MAN WAS FED UP WITH DIRTY LAVATORIES.
THESE EXAGGERATIONS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD! DON'T YOU THINK?
