Damn! Lefty is unbeatable!

March 25, 2009

Blog Guy, you’ve mentioned that both President Obama and his wife, Michelle, are World Class Rock, Paper and Scissors competitors. But I’ve heard that in some places, they play the game differently.

Yes, you’re thinking of France, where they play a solo version.

Solo?

Yeah, you play yourself. It’s quite challenging, because your left and and right hands have to try to guess what each other will do. Here, you can see French President Sarkozy playing himself. Incidentally, he lost this game.

Lost? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Why wouldn’t you know what both of your hands are doing?

I’ll tell you why. Look at the scissors photo, below. Sarkozy’s eyes are CLOSED!

Ah, then that makes sense! I can’t wait to go to France and try it!
