“If someone says that they are short staffed at work, does that mean only midgets work there?”

An organization that is “short-staffed” is short of staff; the organizaton doesn’t necessary have workers who aren’t tall. “Are restaurants with Dwarf Waiters short staffed?” was posted on alt.humor.puns on June 27, 1996. “We’re short staffed like a midget whore house” was posted on Twitter on March 4, 2013.
 
“If someone says that they are short staffed at work, does that mean only midgets work there?” was posted on Twitter on July 25, 2011. The “short-staffed” pun has been printed on many images

Hmmm, the local supermarket seems short-staffed today. They’ve hired midgets to run the shop.

I’m at a midget themed restaurant. They’re having a hard time finding little people though so it’s pretty short staffed.

If a restaurant was only staffed by midgets, would it always be short-staffed?
