Dennis it took me two days to stop laughing. ' Old Tennis Shoe Whiskey'?http://www.straightbourbon.com/images/icons/laugh.gif from North Overshoe Nebraska?! While I've no idea it seems most likely that either someone is having a bit of fun at your expense or if real it surely must be a gag bottling. I think this qualifies for Chuck Cowdery's "Most Rejected Whiskey Names" and rivals Old Foote. Ed did you have anything to do with this?
