A expression primarily used by people who don't know the difference between weight and volume, it's supposed to mean that the situation is "fucked up" or "out of control". A better phrase would be "10 gallons of shit in a 5 gallon bag", but the person using the phrase is too fucking dumb to know the difference.

-No, fuckin, 10 pounds but only 5 pounds so there's shit everywhere.
