I wonder if the game "5 star" should be included in this as well? It's similar, the main difference is instead of looking for lights out, you look for vehicles with five lights above the windshield, but you can't use semi's as these are far too common. The person who points out the fivestar chooses who removes clothing, but if he mistakes a semi, or 4 star (one burnt out) for a fivestar, that person is required to remove a peice of their clothing.

"Please note that being from Washington I've never heard of this. We have "Beer me" and "Shot me" as options to yell out first when a burned out light is seen. This means you recieve 1 beer for a normal headlight, or a shot for a fog light being burned out. Thanks!"

The origin of the term is unknown. It was widely used in New Jersey, New York and other eastern states in the 1950s to refer to cars with one headlight out. For couples, the last person who spotted the car and said Padiddle removed an article of clothing. It is possible that the term goes back as far as the 1940s.
The game made it to the West Coast by the late 1950s. In Southern California, the rules were simple: The spotter would say "Padiddle" and start counting. When the second person spotted the target car and said "padiddle," he or she would have to buy the first spotter one Coke for each second taken.
Additionally, in Pennsylvania at least, a car with one taillight is called a "Pasqualm".
In some parts of the East Coast, the terms "padiddle", "padaddle", and "padimmer" are used. "Padiddle" is for a vehicle with one working headlight. "Padaddle" is used for a vehicle with one working tail light. "Padimmer" is used for a vehicle with one light (whether it be headlight or tail light) that is dimmer than the other.
In Hamilton County, Indiana, there exist "extreme padiddle, where at a stop light you switch seats in a counter clock wise rotation no matter how many pieces of clothing you have lost.
One specific variation is as follows:
A "padiddle" may be called for the following things, resulting in the loss of one article of the loser's clothing:
-One or both burned-out head/tail lights -red cars -Government vehicles (Law Enforcement, Fire, Medical, Mail) -semi trucks -turn signals -whenever a false "padiddle" is called -flashing or burned-out street lights -homeless pedestrians -golf carts of cub cadets -tractors or farm machinery -deer -wrecked cars -Scion XBs -Trains
In some variations a "padiddle" may only be called on a broken headlight, additional rules are up to the driver.
The following "kamikazes" may be called, resulting in the loss of all the loser's clothing:
-cars with flames or neon -cars with both headlights or taillights burned-out
In Northern California the game is referred to as "padido," which is a different variation of the game "paddidle".
1. When someone in the car sees a vehicle with a broken/dimmed tail-light or headlight, they must say padido and touch the roof of the car. The last person in the car to touch the roof of the car after that must take of an article of clothing.(Players CANNOT cover themselves with the clothing they have removed)
2. The driver is considered a player as well.
3. Things that do not count as articles of clothing are: hats, jewelry, belts, shoes, socks, and accessories.
4. While playing padido, if you have no more articles of clothing to remove, the next time you are the last person to touch the roof, you must perform a reasonable sexual favor for the person who called the padido.
5. The game ends when you either arrive at your destination and the car is turned off.
6."Kamikaze" rules (listed above) also apply to padido.
- It is advised that the game be played in a parking lot facing a highway.
- The game may be stopped at any time by either player to take a "back seat break".
- If the driver loses an article of clothing due to a "padiddle", he may request that the passenger(s) remove his item of clothing for him, as a safety precaution.
- Shoes, socks, and accessories do not count as articles of clothing.
- The order of removed clothing is up to the loser.
- After the game is finished, it is mandatory that all players be allowed to rest for 30 or so minutes in the back seat of the vehicle.
- In Jack Johnson's song "Mudfootball", he sings a lyric "Like driving a padiddle with a burnt-out fuse."
The rules of this game vary greatly by region. Many on the west coast refer to the game as simply "Diddle", the game is called "Spadiddle" in some parts of southeast Texas, and some Ohioans play the game under the name "Buckeye". In addition, though less common, the game has been known to be pronounced "Badiddle", with a "b" rather than a "p". A Canadian variant exists wherein the spotter calls "Beer" upon spotting a burned-out headlight, implying the driver is under the influence and a wreck has caused their light to break. In the basic game, the first person to spot a vehicle with only one operational headlight, foglight, or taillight shouts "Padiddle!" Some who play use the term "Sex" or other more explicit words in favor of "Padiddle". During "Sex" the last person to hit the roof of the car has to take off an item of clothing, even the driver.

Does anyone know which episode of King of the Hill refers to the game variant know as "Pee-diddle"? Chris Fjordson 18:31, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
Kissing Variation (still unreferenced)
In the simple dating version (the kissing version), by mutual consent of the parties the kisses could be "cashed" immediately while still driving, or they could be saved up until the end of the journey and cashed all at once. We also played a double-date version. If one of the guys called Padiddle, both girls had to kiss their boyfriends, and vice versa.
