So, for 25 years I've been singing "I don't care, I don't care..." in the style of Kevin Meaney. It's been a personal in-joke of mine and it comes up on a semi-weekly basis. Anytime something annoying or frustrating or upsetting happens, I'll launch into a rousing chorus of "I don't care, I don't care (he doesn't care)", then continue on my way. Well, earlier this week I got to meet the man and photograph him backstage and onstage at Birdland. It was a simple little thrill, meeting the originator of this meme-before-there-were-memes, and he was as gracious and as personable as I always imagined. "Woof woof woof, meow meow meow!"
