The Most Swelled Head There Has Ever Been

“I’m the best hyperbolizer in the world.”

“Stop exaggerating.”

“Have you ever heard of anyone else like me? I’m a world-famous big-talker, man! One of a kind!”

“There’s only one thing you could claim you’re famous for, and that’s the size of your head.”

“Yep! Biggest noggin there ever was!”


This story is based on the prompt “hyperbolic” at TypeTrigger.

    1. Good catch. The word can actually refer either to mathematical hyperbolas or to hyperbole. The literary term was the interpretation that caught me.

      I suppose if I was really clever, I could have formed some pun out of the dual definitions, but that would have been far more difficult! :)
