von mir aus

Well, all right, maybe he didn’t inspect it, but he paged through it happily, and he was very glad to know I was learning German from it. So here’s an expression Lucky Luke has taught me: von mir aus. A humiliated villain stomps off, swearing undying revenge. The hero answers, “Von mir aus!”– “Whatever!” or “Like I care!”
