“Are you ready to rock…paper, scissors?”

Rock music has nothing to do with the game of “rock-paper-scissors,” but there are jokes. “Are You Ready To Rock‚ĶPaper, Scissors?” was posted on the blog sink or schwim. on May 27, 2008.
   
A joke was posted on Twitter by flappy ūüź• on July 6, 2019:
   
“Are you ready to rock?”
Scissors: no

   
   
Wikipedia: Rock—papper—scissors
Rock‚Äďpaper‚Äďscissors (also known as scissors‚Äďrock‚Äďpaper or other variants) is a hand game usually played between two people, in which each player simultaneously forms one of three shapes with an outstretched hand. These shapes are “rock” (a closed fist), “paper” (a flat hand), and “scissors” (a fist with the index finger and middle finger extended, forming a V). “Scissors” is identical to the two-fingered V sign (also indicating “victory” or “peace”) except that it is pointed horizontally instead of being held upright in the air. A simultaneous, zero-sum game, it has only two possible outcomes: a draw, or a win for one player and a loss for the other.

Are You Ready To Rock…Paper, Scissors?

Rock. Paper. Scissors. On the outside, they are three seemingly unconnected words, but to my 1st grade students they might as well translate into, ‚ÄúBest. Game. EVAR!‚ÄĚ

When The Rock is about to do it to his wife I bet he says something sexy like “You ready to Rock?!” or “Rock, paper, scissors?!”

I’m terrible at rock-paper-scissors because I always yell “LET’S GET READY TO ROCK!” beforehand
