Padiddle is a nighttime travel game with the objective of earning points by spotting vehicles with a burnt-out headlight. You must say “Padiddle” and hit the ceiling of the car as fast as you can, while driving. Whoever calls it first gets a point. The person with the highest score is the winner.
The game is sometimes known as kadiddle, and is sometimes associated with punching another passenger in the car, rather than hitting the roof. However, punching usually occurs when a padiddle (or kadiddle) is seen outside of a vehicle (such as when walking around at night).
Hooters is a racier version of the game where the last person to hit the ceiling is supposed to take off an article of clothing. The first person naked loses, and the game is reset, however the loser must remain naked until the end of the car ride.
A player may only win back their article of clothing once they are fully naked. If a person is to call a headlight out when they are fully nude, they may take back on piece of clothing, but are allowed none more. Clothing may only be put back on when the destination is reached.
Archie Comics is an American comic book publisher headquartered in the Village of Mamaroneck, Town of Mamaroneck, New York, known for its many series featuring the fictional teenagers Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Reggie Mantle and Jughead Jones. The characters were created by publisher/editor John L. Goldwater, written by Vic Bloom and drawn by Bob Montana.

Archie’s first appearance in Pep Comics #22 on December 22, 1941, was drawn by Montana and written by Vic Bloom. With the creation of Archie, publisher Goldwater hoped to appeal to fans of the Andy Hardy movies starring Mickey Rooney. Archie Comics is also the title of the company’s longest-running publication, the first issue appearing with a cover date of Winter 1942. Starting with issue #114, the title was shortened to simply Archie.
