Whatever hocks your holly
Cyclo: Went by some hollyhocks today.
Psycho Chick: Yeah? Whatever.
Cyclo: Really. I took a picture. See?
Psycho Chick: Whatever hocks your holly.
Cyclo: Hmm. Unimpressed. Or mad at something?
Psycho Chick: Gestures the “W.”
Whatever, used by itself, is a less than polite way to express indifference: “I don’t care what you think.” A one-word sentence. It has been described as a “passive-aggressive conversational blocking tool”.
The Urban Dictionary (a vote counter, not a concordancer) gives more examples.
