To be used after witnessing or hearing anything wack, bizarre or questionable.
Ei., a crack head comes up to you and your friend while he's scratching his ass and says, "hey, want to buy this barbie doll?" Upon the examination of his crack status and the irony that even his Barbie looks like she does heroine, you and friend both say, "shanty" to eachother as you continue on your way(elongating the y, thus sounding like , shanteeeeeeee). A sandwich with browning lettuce is "shanty", dumb brauds are "shanty", and old Korean ladies who wear paper towels on their heads while they brush their teeth in public restrooms are shanty.
