I am so fat i look like a pig.

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/24/2015 - 01:23
That is actually a simile.

That is actually a simile. I'm so fat a pig weighs more than me is a hyperbole. Saying the words "like a" makes it a simile.

"I'm so fat a big weight more

"I'm so fat a big weight more than me" I actually taught it was COMPARISON

A shallow heart?

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 03/09/2015 - 15:14
Paradox

This is a paradox because your heart isn't shallow, as it has many chambers, but it could be shallow too because it implies that you aren't kind-hearted.

Answer

No it's not. try to think about exaggerations and comparisons. For example:
-I'm so hungry I could eat a whole horse
-He's so smart he could solve any calculus question with a flick of a finger

Much of this is also used to express frustration, and is common in our colloquial speech.
