humor found in Volkswagens, "Pidgin German" comedy labels someone invented years ago

Das Glimmerblinken for the light switch,
Der Drizzleflippen for wiper switch,
Die Warmercougher for choke,
Das Schmokegedunka for ashtray,
and Der Puttersparken for the ignition.

I love this kind of humor! I first saw it in April at the Coronado car show (last photo of the set http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2008/04/cool-stuff-i-found-at-coronado-car-show.html ) in this car http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2008/04/1951-mercedes-170da-in-afrika-corps.html

or in German...
Das Glimmerblinken" (für Lichtschalter),
"Das Drizzleflippen" (für den Scheibenwischer)
, "Die Warmercougher" (für Starthilfezugknopf),
"Das Schmokegedunka" (Ascher)
oder "Der Puttersparken" (für Zündung)
