Live Long and Paper

Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard. I’m puzzled enough already as to how Paper could possibly beat Rock in the regular game, now you have to wonder why a Lizard would eat Paper, or why Spock would vaporize a rock. I can probably understand Lizard poisoning Spock, though, since Vulcans are vegetarian. But didn’t ancient Vulcans eat lizard? And if Vulcans are vegetarian to avoid illogical killing, why won’t they eat replicated meat?

Update: And I wonder if Evil Mirror Universe Spock eats meat? To see how you would look in the Evil Mirror Universe, get a goatee.
