OED Word of the Day: Padiddle


Every day the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) has a "Word of the Day."  I thought today's selection was interesting and wanted to share.

Padiddle - An exclamation shouted in a game by the first of a group of people who spots a motor vehicle with only one working headlight, this person being entitled variously to kiss or hit the others.


I have never heard of this, but perhaps it's related to the Punch Buggy game. :)
