    krebs walks into a seedy bar, and the bartender says “what’ll ya have?” krebs orders a full bottle of mezcal tequila, opens it, and pours the contents on the floor. the dumbfounded barkeep has to know why he did it, and krebs replies “just here to remove a worm.”

    Hmmm…doesn’t Marcus do something like this to another classmate early in Little Brother creating a diversion so he and his friends sneak out of class?
