Slap the shit from a hog's mouth
Jamaican phrase that vividly describes extreme poverty. It means being so impoverished that one is in competition with hogs (pigs) for meager food resources. It implies the idea of vigorously trying to take food from a hog's mouth, even resorting to slapping or snatching it away to have it for yourself. It's an even more vivid way to depict the struggles of poverty in Jamaican Patois.
