Re: Evil Has Risen Again

Read the definition of "oxymoron" again. A figure of speech. "LK tolerant" is not a figure of speech, it's two words thrown together. The two terms may contradict each other, but that is not enough to make an oxymoron.

"Hyperbole" also needs defining. It doesn't mean an exaggeration. It's a linguistic tool, used, for example, by Shakespeare, to add emphasis. Saying that LK is the hottest, best looking, most attractive member here would be hyperbolic, for example (and a lie ) as the exaggeration is itself exaggerated.

It's is not a lie! It is true.

And:

Quote:
Main Entry: hy·per·bo·le
Pronunciation: hI-'p&r-b&-(")lE
Function: noun
Etymology: Latin, from Greek hyperbolE excess, hyperbole, hyperbola, from hyperballein to exceed, from hyper- + ballein to throw -- more at DEVIL
: extravagant exaggeration (as "mile-high ice-cream cones")
I made an extravagant exaggeration IMO, saying she used a smiley after EVERY sentence...

or am I wrong...

I am aware of all that.
I didn't look it up to begin with, that itself was simply a figure of speech.

It was said in jest and not meant as literal, as I am well aware that "LK TOLERANT" is not a figure of speech.

What's with everybody today?
Lack of sense of humor or lack of metamucil?

Are you calling me a smart ass? Because you posted this after I tipped my hat to lk's comedic impersonation of yourself.

Oh and you are a bitch to try and quote.

Re: Evil Has Risen Again

Ya, people have no sense of humour today. This one time, today, I impersonated someone and she got all bitchy about it...

That's just an exagerration. Hyperbole would be if you said she did it after "every single last one of every sentence she ever writes ever".

This example isn't the best to illustrate it with. I guess the simplest way to describe hyperbole is exaggerated exaggeration. Kind of like saying the same thing over and over again. Repeating yourself.

Oddly, that last paragraph is a little hyperbolic.

Re: Evil Has Risen Again

Wow, WWF Angel, you got all bent out of shape because he mocked the annoying way you post? Geez, learn to accept sarcasm and jokes, won't ya?

But yeah, honestly, your format is quite strange. What's the need for spacing out every other sentence? The smiley use is tolerable, though.


The good ol' days.
