the north mississippi all stars released a fine album called shake hands with shorty. i happen to know from growing up in the south that shake hands with shorty was the set up line for a silly joke. i checked around a little on the internet and cant find any mention of the original joke itself, just the album. any one wanna take a guess at the punch line? (immediate family excluded adman!)

Well, up North, "shake hands with shorty" is an old expression that men use when visiting the restroom...
