That's funny. Reminds me of friends of ours from Scotland who enjoyed "Woodies" for breakfast, apparently a Scottish term for waffles. Since they were living in the U.S. at the time (1990's), we delicately told them what the colloquial definition of a "Woodie" in the U.S. at that time.

You may not need "bare" arms for RPS, but you certainly need "bare" hands, "right" or left. Please forgive the very poor puns...

I believe it was presented at the end of "Dragon Rules", the episode with the king's rest day and Dragon being too big and clumsy to play bandyball. Ending the episode by having everyone wanting to play with Dragon (in the less bruising game of rock, parchment, sword) was a nice touch.

Once, somewhere in rural PA, I challenged a first-grader to RPS and, sure enough, on the GO he made a gun off his fingers and said "Gun beats everything". RPS is for people who don't have second amendment.

I love Jane and Dragon! How did I miss their version of RPS?

Funny coincidence- Mary Roach (a popular science writer) has written several books, among them one called "Stiff" and on called "Bonk". The former (which is better in my opinion) is about death and what happens to the body from that point. The latter is about sex (this is an adult forum, right?) and what happens to the body before and after that "point".

HI Aubrey. Remember how in Zim/SA we used to call the old 5-1/4 inch disks "Floppies" and the more rigid 3-1/2 disks "Stiffies"? When I got to Australia I discovered that "Stiffie" had an entirely different meaning... :-)
