Well, what I try to do is throw as much mud on the
wall as I possibly can and just see what sticks,

After Lock, Stock, all these really nasty small town
characters came knocking at my door trying to tell me stories,
and somehow I ended up with this guy whose brother
was feeding people to pigs,
and that's what he did to get rid of people.

On this one, I felt that.
