A hastily assembled, often half-assed shelter. Hobos often live in shantys. Poor people in crappy countries often build entire shanty-towns. Pirates also make Shantys out of leaves, sticks and other things, on islands, to sleep in.

Panties worn by those interested in scatology, or scat play, for the exclusive purpose of defecating in; a throwaway pair that can be disposed of after using for its intended fetishistic purpose, thus avoiding burdensome cleaning.

(A portmanteau of "shit" and "panties".)
