Scissors, Rock and Fabric

You’re probably familiar with the popular Chinese hand-gesture game, called: 剪刀, 石头, 布! (Jiăndāo, shítou, bù!)”.

剪刀 (jiăndāo) is a pair of scissors, 石头 (shítou) is a rock and (bù) is a piece of fabric.

Well, here is a challenge. Watch John Jacobson in the video titled “Scissors Paper Rock“, and see if you can do this dance but substitue the English words “scissors”, “paper” and “rock” with 剪刀 (jiăndāo), 石头 (shítou), and (bù), respectively, using the proper guesture for each. In English, paper sounds better than cloth or fabric; and “rock” is placed at the end of the phrase for the same emphasis provided by (bù). Have fun!
