"Keep shakin' that bush, Boy."

That's the line from "Luke," that the deputy says to the chain gang member who needs to go behind a bush to relieve himself. As long as the bush is shaking, he hasn't run away, and doesn't get shot at.

So I was representing a black movie actor in a criminal trial some time ago and he thought it was a great platform to do some of his riffs. Every time the judge overruled one of my objections, the actor would stage-whisper to me, "Keep shakin' that bush, boy!"
