I saw an ad for a residential and commercial area on a bus the other day. It said something like this, with the emphasis being mine.
Along the [whatever corridor], we have six barber shops, ten restaurants, five cafes, and two yacht brokers.
That got me curious. I have no doubts of the legitimacy of the claim, I certainly believe that there are two yacht brokers in the area, but unless I've greatly underestimated where I live, I don't imagine that information is actually meant to be useful. Rather, it's present as an example to express something similar to "we have everything here, we even have two yacht brokers!" The idea probably isn't that people will read through the list whilst yacht-shopping and decide to visit the area in search of a deal.
So, my question, what is this called? It reminds me of hyperbole, since it's using an "exaggeration" (of sorts, anyway--not really) to show a point, but am I right to think that a hyperbole is, by definition, not actually true? "I work a million hours every week" seems a lot more like a hyperbole than the more accurate "I work seventy hours every week," even though both are relatively big numbers.
This seems like a similar type of rhetoric, but I can't find anything that seems to resemble it.
