Ok, it's a bit awkward to explain, but I'll try.
When we were kids, and we played rock-paper-scisors, we would shout (literal translation) "rock paper scissors, the winner of the two, one, two, three!"
"Rock paper scissors" in Hebrew: "Even Niyar U'Misparayim", but kids pronounce it ”Even Yaru Misparayim". There's no such thing as Yaru in Hebrew, but every kid knows the context when it comes to rock-paper-scissors.

Hope that made it clear. I feel like such an exotic ancient tribe member right now [emoji14]
