Word of the Day 10/30/15 Absquatulate

Absquatulate (verb)
absquatulate [ab-skwoch-uh-leyt]


verb (used without object), absquatulated, absquatulating. Slang.
1. to flee; abscond: The old prospector absquatulated with our picks and shovel.

Origin: 1820-30; pseudo-Latinism, from ab-, squat, and -ulate, paralleling Latin-derived words with initial abs- (e.g., abscond, abstention ) and final -tulate (e.g., congratulate )

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
