“A cop pulled me over and said, ‘Papers.’ So I said, ‘Scissors, I win!’ and drove off”

Officers who ask for “papers” aren’t interested in playing rock-paper-scissors,”, but there’s a joke:
 
“A cop pulled me over and said, ‘Papers.’ So I said, ‘Scissors, I win!’ and drove off.”
 
The joke was posted on Twitter on August 11, 2010 and has been printed on many images.
