I Could Care Less

Just finished Lord of the White Hell Book One, which I loved. I'll be posting a review - hopefully tomorrow. However, on the last page there's a phrase that makes me wince a little. I guess it's a UK thing. Javier says
"You could give a shit about the academy."
Which immediately makes me think about a certain David Mitchell Soapbox episode which for your viewing pleasure I've attached below. :)

OMg that was hilarious. I noticed that sentence while I was reading and thought, wait, shouldn't that say couldn't? Ah the things we notice in books. :)

Tracy - I love David Mitchell's delivery. I first saw this soapbox quite a while ago, but as soon as I read that phrase at the end of Book 1 it made me seek it out again on Youtube.
