Couldn't give a monkey's

What could you give if you couldn't give a monkey's? Answer; nothing at all; it means you couldn't care less.

It's a short form of I couldn't give a monkey's toss.

A toss is another word for a throw.

You can toss a pancake - like this.

You can say, I couldn't give a toss.

But best of all, I couldn't give a monkey's.

We can also call children cheeky monkeys - these ones here are certainly naughty and they couldn't give a monkey's about damamging the jeep!
