An exaggeration statement or claim not to be taken literally.
Hyperboles can be used everyday whether you notice it or not.
I can't even count the amount of times I hear someone say "I'm starving" when really they just want to eat, or even on Thanksgiving I heard "After that feast, I'm going to weigh more than an elephant!", when really they gain 5 pounds (if any).
