To walk in a very gingerly and deliberate fashion because of swollen and painful feet or just plain old "bad" feet. Not to be confused with shuffling, this term originated down south in the 1920s-30s-40s. Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor often used this colorful rare word. Origin unknown.
Look at that old man over there palmer housing. His corns must be killing him.
