I Think There's A Comma Missing From The Speech Bubble Too

This cartoon appeared on Thursday (7th August) in 'thelondonpaper' (their rendition, not mine), a free paper which is dished out in London of an evening.

You might like to contrast the cartoon with the following dialogue from the film 'Edward Scissorhands', made in 1990:

EDWARD: Kevin, you want to play scissors-paper-stone?
EDWARD: No, why?
KEVIN: It's boring. I'm tired of always winning.

As with jokes during the 1990s about Daleks being unable to conquer the universe because they can't climb stairs, it's usually a good idea to actually check the source material first...
