    Curmudgeon fits for his shitty command of the language, I think you meant a word with the opposite meaning. Stickler?

    Either way he's said "COULD care less" a million times, so, yeah, he iz be retard.

    That's only a New York City/Long Island thing- I've lived in CT & Mass and never have heard ONE person say "standing ON line" ever...

    It was annoying as shit pre-internet, and now it's an even more ludicrous phrase.

    Throw in new Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania and you may be on to something.

    agreed. I'm from CT and nobody says that...mostly because it doesn't make any sense.

    Today Howard said he wants to get an English tutor because he never learned to speak with proper grammar. He went on to say his wife is an English major and her mother was an English teacher.

    :facepalm:

    notice how he never refers to her as an "english graduate." :rofl:

    who gives a shit what she majored in during her short tenure at university? does that make her, or anyone else, an expert?

    He could CARE LESS about standing ON line, but WHO KNOWS?

    I gotta say, only Bubba the Love Sponge massacres the English language worse than the Wig. I listen to R&B DJs who are more articulate.
