Is it "pop a squat" or "cop a squat"?

Answer

Both "pop a squat" and "cop a squat" are popular, but "pop a squat" is more common. The origins of the phrases are unknown, and both are relatively recent idioms. As with most idioms, the original intention of the phrase is not viewed as important.

Neither "pop a squat" nor "cop a squat" make much sense from a purely logical point of view. "Cop" generally means take, and "pop" is rarely used as a verb when referring to humans. Nevertheless, both phrases are well understood in the United States, and both relay the same instruction, which is to sit. Some believe that "pop a squat" refers to a weightlifting exercise, but there is no available data to support this notion.
