-Someone hiding from the police.
From absquatulate (v.) 1837, "Facetious U.S. coinage", perhaps based on a mock-Latin negation of squat "to settle." Said to have been used by the U.S. Western character "Nimrod Wildfire" in the play "The Kentuckian," as re-written by British author William B. Bernard and staged in London in 1833.
Used in a sentence:
“We found an abscotchalater hiding in the abditory in the back of the barn!”
Is this story "Fake News" or something that actually happened in Florida.
