BELIEF -- Good luck
Date learned: 02-18-1970
A piddiddle, as identified by teens in the 1930's in New
Jersey was an automobile with a burned out head lamp. If a teen
girl or boy were out on a date and saw a "piddiddle" and was the
first to shout it out, he or she could ask for a kiss or could
announce that his or her "piddiddle" would cancel their mate's next
piddiddle -- meaning, if he or she announced that he/she wanted a
kiss on the next "piddiddle", the one who canceled it with the
prior sighting did not have to kiss him or her.
