I spoke to Rock, Paper, and Scissors recently and asked them how they deal with their respective nemeses.
Rock said: If I spend enough time around scissors, they’ll have a hard time moving eventually.
Paper said: I never met a rock too hard for me to dig into and break through.
Scissors said: I eat paper pretty quickly; frankly I prefer to savor something less processed.
Who are Rock, Paper, and Scissors?
(The answer is not "Rock, Paper, and Scissors" in any order =P)
Adding a hint because I think this is throwing people off:
Did you notice that sometimes Rock, Paper, and Scissors are capitalized and sometimes they're not?
One more hint:
The answers to this riddle have a rock-paper-scissor type relationship, in the same direction as their Rock-Paper-Scissor aliases.
Last hint, because some of you are really close, but need to take your answer a step further:
Some of you have approximately the right elements, but your answer should be a well-known trio of entities, each of which embodies one of those elements. You might say each of these entities has a certain "type" ;)
