ABSQUATULATE – v. humorous, chiefly N. Amer. leave abruptly
The origin of this word is described as a combination of the words ABSCOND, SQUATTLE (which means to depart) and PERAMBULATE. Interesting, eh?
I found someone’s personal website called http://www.absquatulate.com but that was about it. I don’t think anyone will be buying that domain name off her anytime soon.
So that’s it for this word. But what a word!
