Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock - Kids
For folks too lazy to break out Urban Spoon when deciding on lunch, we offer a superior alternative to Rock Paper Scissors. And if you wear this shirt while making the decision, you can always remember what beats what because we've provided handy arrows.
We'll be honest here. We hadn't heard of Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock until that episode of The Big Bang Theory. You could say that prior to that day we were traditional roshamboists. When we heard Sheldon explain how it works and why it's superior to your standard-grade RPS, we immediately paused the TV and went over to teh Intarwebs to do research. And indeed, we found the page by Sam Kass, the genius behind this version. His phenomenon must now be part of our life. However, none of us knew anything about this version of the game. So we ended up playing Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock to figure out who had to write the copy for this shirt. It went a little something like this:
Fearless Leader: "One, two, three, SHOOT!"
Rules Lawyer: "What's that?"
Free Thinker: "It's a zombie."
Rules Lawyer: "There is no Zombie in Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock."
Free Thinker: "Braaaaaainsssss."
Rules Lawyer: "There are no Brains in Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock."
Merchant Monkey: "Lizard and Spock have Brainnnnnnnsssss."
Second Merchant: "Right. And Rock bludgeons Zombie into a small pile of blood, teeth, and hair."
Free Thinker: "Awwww."
Fearless Leader: "Are you two done? Okay. Again. One, two, three, SHOOT!"
Rules Lawyer: *raised eyebrow*
Free Thinker: "It's the Large Hadron Collider."
The symbols for Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock in a circle (with arrows for reference on what beats what) on a blue, 50/50 cotton, polyester kids' shirt. Shirt color should be almost identical to the men's shirt, but will differ from either of the ladies' options.
