    Irregardless of what Rat says, you make sense, Pig.

    Does it ever occur to Pig that it would be more practical to wear his message on a T-shirt than to stand behind a box all day?

    It depends on what message pig is trying to convey. Maybe he does care.

    I could care less about this particular strip. But it would take more effort than it’s worth to do that…

    George Carlin : Some words are fun. Words like “flammable”… “flammable”, “inflammable” and “nonflammable”. Why are there three? Does it seem to you as though two words ought to be able to handle that idea? I mean, either the thing flams or it doesn’t flam.

    Just like bumper stickers and T shirts, if you don’t care what people think you wouldn’t bother plastering the message everywhere.

    If I could care less, no one would know that I did care less, because I wouldn’t care enough to talk about it. Some one should tell Pastis about printed T-shirts. Wearing your message is much easier than dragging around big boxes w/signs.

    People misuse this saying all the time. And Pig, you didn’t have to change the sign and it would have nearly the same meaning.

    Saying that you couldn’t care less is oxymoronic. If you’re bothering to say it, you care.

    It’s true, Rat. Pig’s English is not so good.

    But he has multitudes of company. So who really cares (other than we, the Few, the Proud, the Grammar Police)?

    I think when I was a little kid, I heard people say “I could care less” and thought “Huh?”
