Iowa-Favorite ‘Padiddle’ Added to ‘Words with Friends’ Social Dictionary
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A slang word popular in Iowa will now be able to help score players points in an online game. “Words with Friends” has added several new regional words to its Social Dictionary – including “padiddle” from Iowa. The word refers to a charming, but somewhat violent, game where one shouts “padiddle” when they spot a car with only one working headlight. Whoever shouts it first earns the right to hit the other occupants of the vehicle.
