It's supposed to be a figure of speech.

Read the TRS I posted, this 'trope' says "if your friend is hungry, they might say they're hungry enough to eat a horse". Not a trope. The fact it reads like a yk that would never get off the ground and has basically no wicks means, IMO, it needs to go.

It is so a trope, I mean, how many times has Hunger Hyperbole been used in fiction?

Uncertain if tropeworthy, started a TRS discussion waiting to be opened.

So apparently the country has decided that we are, collectively, exactly this hungry.

This isn't really a trope. It's just something people say. It doesn't affect anything around it and it doesn't even have any particular genre of work it is used in. Plus it's pretty thin on examples. It could probably be nuked.

If it makes you happy, I fixed the description so that it says what genre it shows up in.
