Blogger, "Hyperbole and a Half"

Hyperbole and a Half is a combination of web comic and blog written by Allie Brosh. The comic is drawn in Paintbrush and is intentionally artistically crude. It is a retelling of her life and includes stories from her childhood as well as the challenges she faces as an adult. Brosh has also expanded the comic into a series of web videos in a similar style, which have been popular.

Hyperbole and a Half draws inspiration from "rage comics," promoting a certain similarity in their shared diction and simple, crude art. In addition to the influence rage comics provide, a number of Brosh's images have, in turn, been repurposed into various memes and rage comic panels. A popular image, taken from an entry where Brosh describes her frustration over her inability to maintain enthusiasm for daily responsibilities, shows Brosh excitedly exclaiming "CLEAN ALL THE THINGS!"
