A Visual Aid: Because I Care

someone mentioned to me that I was making this wrong statement.

I have now changed my statement to: "I couldn't care less". Isn't this what we really mean?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

You are performing a very valuable public service here. The best bastardization of this statement that I have ever heard was: "I could care a less". I'm still trying to figure that one out.

Mistress La Spliffe said...

I need to get that diagram on some business cards and remember to carry them around for wide fucking distribution.

Chris said...

Thank you for caring, Dale, more or less...

Andi said...

At first, out of the corner of my eye, I thought it said "The caring scrotum." Shows you where my mind is.

Coaster Punchman said...

For some reason, I enjoy saying "I could care less." It just sounds more, I don't know, punchy. Which is only appropriate for a Punchman.

I realize grammatical people will think ill of me for saying it. But you know what? I could care less.

Jake's Mom said...

Here's a quarter, call someone who cares...sound familiar?

Flannery Alden said...

Though I'm a stickler for accuracy in communication, I'm with CP on this one. I could care less almost implies that I could care less, but I can't even be bothered. It just drips with apathy.

Dale said...

Teri, now you are washed clean of past sins. Go forth and care. Or not.

I do what I can with my limited resourcing Barbara. Thank you.

And on the back, there should be a toll free number people can call for support Mistress.

Your comment couldn't mean more Chris. Or could it?

If possible Andi, please always read here out of the corner of your eye. My scrotum thanks you.

You're a brave Punchman Coaster. I applaud your desire for occasional scorn.

It was my first number one country hit Jake's Mom, I didn't know you were a fan.

Oh Flannery, I was so prepared to love you after seeing your brilliant comments on other blogs. Now I must pretend not to love you. And you won't even care.

The Gifted Typist said...

The Caring Scotum: Andi take that and run with it, turn that in to stage play (or, better yet Opera), take it to Broadway and you WILL be famous!
Mark my words

lulu said...

and now I am humming "We Care A Lot"

Dale said...

Hang on a second Gifted Typist (and Andi)...It's my caring scrotum and I'm not sure if it's ready for the stage (I was going to say big time). Yet.

No hummer jokes after scrotum jokes Dale, it's declasse.

I'm humming right along Lulu.

Mob said...

Can I get the visual aid in t-shirt form?

Andi said...

I did find a rather stunning full-body penis costume online once. It had avery nice, friendly, caring scrotum that would be perfect for show tunes!

deadspot said...

I think you should stage The Caring Scrotum across the street from the Vagina Monologues and have the performers swap venues at intermission.

BeckEye said...

Maybe I'll just start saying, "I could care more," which would get across that I rarely care enough.

NYCbeauty said...

crack me up....I was *JUST* making fun of people who get this wrong with a friend of mine. Ah, your blog is so timely, so NOW.

How was the day off?

Johnny Yen said...

I looked in vain for "rat's ass" on the scale. It must have been in the omitted part.

I bought a wonderful button recently that says "Save it for your therapist, asshole." Did you want to borrow it?

Flannery Alden said...

Sometimes I prefer the more sonorous option over the accurate one. What can I say?

Does it help that I hate it when people say they're going to "give it 110%"?

Love me, Dale.

Dale said...

You could but your target audience might not care to take the time and learn from you that way. I was thinking of having it printed on baseball bats.

But do you have the balls to wear it Andi?

It'd be fun to watch them running into each other Deadspot. Hilarious.

You're an original Beckeye. Say it.

I'm glad the timing worked NYC Beauty although I'm not too sure I'm so NOW about anything.

It was excellent and filled with mindless Canadian style pursuits Winter.

No, but you should always wear it when you read my blog Johnny.

Flannery, I'm with you 110% on that.

Barbara Walters interviewed Jennifer Hudson and said it's been 3 years since you were voted off American Idol. Did you ever in a million years dream that you'd be here?

Argh.

Love,

Dale

Flannery Alden said...

Argh! Now I must pretend not to love you!

Dale said...

Be my guest, sweet F.A. :-)

Old Lady said...

I could care more.

Dale said...

I don't know if I care now Old Lady. Okay, I do.

X. Dell said...

People screw up sayings all the time. Frankly, I couldn't care less.

Dale said...

It's why I do X. Dell.

wonderturtle said...

THANK YOU! Here's to accuracy.

Dale said...

Thank God you spelled everything right there WT, imagine me having to chastise you? :-)
