Further to Diddle-e-squat

Posted by Teralee Bird on September 29, 2005

Further to 'Diddle-e-squat' - one can draw out from the usage by carnies as a charge for sitting in on travelling games of chance, that it was 'a diddle a squat', or a small amount of money for each 'squat' at the gambling circle. Who hasn't seen in old movies or on tv people squatting in a circle over dice or cards?
