Etymology: Blended jocular mock-Latin word. Arose in America in the 19th century (about 1837). Probably made up of the following parts: The Latin adverb and prefix ab, "away (from)", (maybe taken from abscond), the suffix -ate (maybe taken from perambulate or undulate), and the middle portion, "squatul", which might be a derivation of to squat.
