Bert Bielema could care less, y'all.

Normally, I don't care about the arbitrary rules of English, but the usage of "could care less," has always struck a nerve deep inside of me. 

YOU'RE SAYING THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU ACTUALLY MEAN, BERT.

Really makes ya think, huh?

This one always bothers me more than bad grammar should.  So does:  calm, cool, and collective instead of calm, cool, and collected

I just heard a sound byte with RGIII saying the former.

That's probably just his way of saying that he's not quite collected, but is attempting to get to that point. He's still collecting so that eventually he'll be collected. I'm 100% sure this is why he said it this way.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

wait, people actually say "calm, cool, and collective"? One of my all-time favorites is when people say "for all intensive purposes"

I couldn't care less about Bert, it's that d-bag Gary Andersen I dislike so much. Bert is now the problem of CSECBS and ESECPN not a problem for THE anymore. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

What makes Gary Anderson a D-bag? I've heard mostly good things about him.

I actually came in here to correct you, but irregardlessly was pleasantly surprised. Claps all around

I'm still going to continue to pronounce Arkansas as Ark-can-sass.

In related news, I'm still going to continue to pronounce Bret as Bert.

it's gotten to the point where I see "Bret" as a typo.

Californian by birth, Marionaire by the Grace of President Warren G. Harding.

Hey, you started it by inserting a catchy phrase.  You spoiled me, what can I say?

As the spawn of depression era parents who both left school to help support their families, I was weaned on a bastardized dialect I refer to as Appalachian Jive.  I remember vividly the moment in about third grade when I realized that nearly every word I had ever heard at home was wrong.  I have a collection of notes I have saved over the years from my dear mother.  One of my favorites is her note to my father telling him what time to be at the church to "git tha far stinkers fixd."  He of course knew without question it was time to service the fire extinguishers.  The words go so much deeper than et, het, and retched, as the past tense of eat, heat, and reach.  God love 'em. Sadly, given their age and health, someday very soon I'm going to miss this.

I can't stand it when people say "I could care less". Much the same as when people misuse the reflexive property of I by using "myself" in an attempt to sound smarter.

You know, I've seen that interview plenty of times and I don't know how people heard "skrong." I hear "strong" just fine.

I axed you a question...
