I've heard of the Italian Mafia sending dead fish as a threat, and the Russian Mafia sending body parts as a threat . . . but who sends a pig's foot? The Redneck Bubba Mafia?
"Don't mess with us. We'll give you gout!"

(So true)

From @ChuckNorriz
When Chuck Norris gets pulled over he lets the cop off with a warning.
