I first read Hyperbole and a Half a couple of weeks ago when the post Dog ("A lingering fear of mine was confirmed last night: My dog might be slightly retarded.") was making the rounds on the pop aggregator sites. There is a ring of truth to the posts there that makes me wonder about how much real hyperbole is involved. Whether it's a little or a lot, it makes for wonderfully entertaining reading. The most recent episode involves a long-lived phobia of bicycles and the reasons behind it. Enjoy.
