    Aahah, apologies to the 4 people. Why do you say 'asked'? That doesn't really make sense.

    "Asked" is an actual verb, though. Where else do you use "arsed"?

    Doesn't matter about it being a verb, it just doesn't make sense in the context of 'can't be bothered'.

    How doesn't it make sense? It's essentially condensing "I can't fulfill your request"/"I can't do what you ask".

    And yes, the former being an actual verb makes it far more likely to be the original derivative of the phrase, since it's extremely unlikely that the term "arsed" was invented for use within that one saying (as it's not present in any other that I can think of).

    I always thought the former was right! Literally our whole class told our Canadian maths teacher, who asked the same question, that it was the former. However if I was to pronounce it, it would sound more like the latter
