I don’t get it : 1 0

Socrates: Do you know what hyperbole is?

Pupil: No. I do not.

Socrates: Hyperbole is exaggeration for deliberate, sometimes comic, affect.

Pupil: I don’t get it.

Socrates: Hyperbole is overstatement.

Pupil: I thought it was exaggeration.

Socrates: It is.

Pupil: I don’t get it.

Socrates: Maybe because you are so god damned stupid!

Pupil: Who?

Socrates: YOU!

Pupil: You’re not being very nice to me today.

Socrates: Just shut up and go home.

Pupil: But you still haven’t told me what hyperbole is!

Socrates: You won’t get it today.

Pupil: When?

Socrates: Probably never.

Pupil: You’re not very nice.

Socrates: *Sigh*
