There are various stories, but the most common I think, is that it’s a contraction of “squashed kid”.August 22, 2008 at 1:39 am #10931CBennettParticipant

I read this on the web somewhere and it’s almost certainly crap but you might find it amusing.
Some guy said that the term was coined by paramedics attending the scene of motorcycle accidents.
He said that when they found the accident ravaged bodies (sometimes in pieces), that with the guts hanging out, they looked like squids!
