Meiosis is the MOST Horribly Marketed Word Ever

by Johnny Debacle

I use the word “Hyperbole” and its most awesome derivatives all the time, but I have never in my life used the word “meiosis,” which is to hyperbole as understatement is to overstatement. I see this as clearly shoddy marketing, a pure failure to resonate with the average word user. It’s time for a rebranding — meiosis should become minibole.

Minibole offers an improved logical relationship to the word’s natural counterparty, Hyperbole. It is also cheaper to produce as s’s have been in short supply due to instability in both the Sudan and South America; the cost of b’s have seen some recent escalation due to Bolivia’s threats to nationalize different sections of the alphabet, but we think this will abate as more b capacity comes online in 2008.

I have already used minibole 6 times today, indicating its improving traction in the word market and it will only get better as the word gets out. And that statement is not hyperbole.

    Shouldn’t it be hypobole?
