Words in English - Give a Hoot.

Give a Hoot
Meaning
show interest in; care about
Use
Owls are birds that sleep during the day and hunt at night. To communicate with other birds, most owls hoot, make a typical sound. It’s a way of letting the other owls know what is going on. 
When people hoot, it’s also to communicate something. Maybe it’s support for a favorite sports team, or approval for an attractive person.

When somebody gives a hoot about something, it means that issue is important. There’s something to be communicated. If a person doesn’t give a hoot, however, he/she doesn’t care at all. Most often, we hear this expression in the negative sense.

Examples
“I don’t give a hoot about what dress you wear. Just hurry up. We’re going to be late!”
“Sally doesn’t give a hoot about which team wins the Superbowl.”
“None of the students gives a hoot about the final examination. Everybody is ready for summer break!”
