It's literally raining cats and dogs.
I would've like to have seen a picture of that.


The place was literally on fire.
Did you call 911? How many fire trucks showed up?


That's literally the last thing I wanted to hear.
Seriously? Your kid had a project due the next day?
I'd be more concerned to learn we launched atomic weapons.


I'm literally freezing to death.
No you're not. You're sitting in your house, not the South Pole,
and are just waiting for the repairman to show up.


My brain literally exploded.
No, you wouldn't be able to say these stupid things if it had.
I feel like mine might though, if you don't stop soon.


I have literally heard you say
all of these things at one time or another
and I find myself literally biting my cheek not to shout,
“You literally need to look that word up in the dictionary!”

Please.
Before I literally go mad.
