our former Prime Minister,
(of our former government) Julia Gillard, thought
hyperbole was pronounced: hyper-bole.
A soccer player scores a goal;
The commentary – HYPER-BOLE!
A movie star wears a mink stole,
So PET goes crazy – HYPER-BOLE!
“We’ll soon be running out of coal!”
It just aint true, it’s – HYPER-BOLE!
“The end is near” – (please cue drum roll)
It’s nowhere near – more HYPER-BOLE!
“Your government is in a hole!”
Must I repeat? That’s HYPER-BOLE!
