It's actually not retarded. You can slice it many ways and it still makes sense.

Why do people assume the less refers to my current state of caring? I may be refering to how much you care. I could care less than you do about this subject.

You telling me something. I tell you I could care less. That means literally, I could care less and probably do. Care less than what? I don't know. Less than you, perhaps, since you're the one that thinks it's so important to tell me. It's complete indifference, a lack of caring.

So even if you take it literally, it can make sense, but you being anal for trying to interpret a colloquialism literally. Also, this topic has been done before.

If you think the grammar sucks on message boards and forums, you really need to experience the lack of education and non-existant command of the English language in the military. People basically advertise their low I.Q. and lack of a functional brain with 8.5"x11" signs on pretty much every single wall. Some days I hate to show up and be made to feel embarassed by my peers.
