The occasional blog of Alistair Bain – Writer, Husband, Father and Chief Techno-Arcanologist at the Institute of Giant Robots, Spaceships and Wizards. None of these positions pay well.

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pencil, Ham

Does the pencil trump paper, is broken by rock and sharpened by scissors?

And does the ham… mutters under breath… the paper, is… mumbles incoherently… and… ham. Ham.


The spawn and I were playing vanilla Rock, Paper, Scissors yesterday and she introduced a few new factors. 



Pencil I can rationalise. But ham?

When the alarm woke me up at 6, the first thing in the early morning maelstrom of consciousness was where ham fits the the puzzle, knocking the usual bladder capacity warnings into second place.

I’m at lunch at work right now and no matter what I’ve done today, my concentration tends to swing back to ham and how it works in the new game. 

Paper wraps ham? Ham makes rock taste of ham? Scissors get clogged with ham? Pencil draws ham, revealing ham’s true intentions and vulnerabilities?

Does ham ham ham?
