If you could care less, that means you care a bit.
I've thought that a number of times. I just imagined it was a typo. Or someone didn't realise the actual meaning of the phrase. Without the, 't, it becomes a pretty much pointles statement does it not? I've pos repped Walker once because he corrected someone on this or something similar.
