"I couldn’t care less." CORRECT!
It seems like people say I could care less, meaning that they couldn’t care less. This is incorrect. The phrase has become so common, it’s as if people have changed it without realizing exactly what they’re saying.
This handy graph shows exactly why the phrase should be I couldn’t care less, rather than I could care less.
I couldn’t care less about a number of things. (Sports, in particular, come to mind.)
I couldn’t care more about spreading the cause of good grammar!
In other news, blogger now allows you to post video, so I plan to put on some video coverage of vandalizing grammar very soon!
