... and then you hit your friend in the arm.
Punch buggy no punch back!
Never heard of the second choice.
Slug bug makes me think you wipe your snot on the person. Hmm... I know a cousin who would have LOVED that version.
Ha! I forgot about the “no slugs back” part...
There was also something about colors too:
“Slug Bug yellow”
I think there was a color that was two punches or something.
EDIT to add... did anyone else also do PADIDDLE? First one to see a car with only one headlight would shout out “padiddle!” No idea why... can’t remember if it also involved shoulder punches.
I had a friend that did "padiddle"
Don't forget "Love Bug"
Yep, we had pididdle too. But we never played that second half mentioned in Urban Dictionary.
That's funny, I was thinking the same thing about the first choice. Must be a West Coast/East Cost thing.
Never heard of the first choice! Maybe this is a West vs east thing...
Edit.. exactly what @Mike Land just said
I was thinking the same thing.
Punch buggy, North East for reference
California was a Slug Bug state for sure.
Nobody knows how to spell pididdle.

what the f is a pididdle?
Slug bug in Iowa when I was growing up.
Never really got into the padiddle thing with a headlight out.
Anyone ever tap the roof of their car as they pass through a yellow light and say either "beer" or "sex"? Obviously, that was a slightly different game than the other two we've been discussing.....
was this on road trips with your parents?
No, ma'am. This was more of a high school buddies road trip type of thing.
My kids started this thing where they would hold their breath anytime we drove through a tunnel. Never had so much fun slowing down!
My cousins held their breaths passing cemeteries. There are some really big cemeteries out there.....
