Walk This Way

I read this definition the other day in Alan Richman's great book "Fork it Over"

Schluff: A deliberate form of locomotion commonly seen in Mississippi work farms where prisoners' [feet] are restrained by ball and chain.

hich makes me wonder why Singaporeans are so fond of schluffing, especially when wearing slippers and loose fitting shoes. It's practically our national walk.
