What does DGARA stand for?

Don’t give a rat’s a**

DGARA is an acronym that stands for “don’t give a rat’s a**”. It’s a term indicating you couldn’t care less about something. This slang is used to express complete indifference or dismissal towards a person or a situation.

This acronym came from the phrase “don’t give a rat’s a**” which was popularized in the 2000s with the rise of mobile phones and the internet. There are several theories about the origin of this phrase. Some believe it’s derived from Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” where the term “don’t give a dead rat” was used. Another theory suggests it was used by U.S. soldiers in World War II to show their disregard for the Japanese flag, which they referred to as a “flying rat’s a**”.

Use DGARA when you want to express your lack of interest or concern about something or someone. It’s often used in a snarky or dismissive manner. For instance, you might say you DGARA about what your pushy boss thinks, or that you DGARA who the next Prime Minister is.
