Hidden because huge:

Supposedly from a KFC in Beijing. The person on the right is some Asian pop star. Or possibly Justin Bieber, not 100% certain.
 
Note that Colonel DILF here doesn't have a lightsaber. Motherfucker brought a cane to a swordfight!

EDIT: This offers some explanation but somehow just raises even more questions.

810 is 10*3^4, so you can simulate one with a d10, a d6 and some math
(or um an RNG but what's the fun in that)

Using rng to simulate dice is a perfectly viable way to play RPGs!

Sure, if you want to just throw away perfectly good hipster cred.

Not disagreeing!

In point of fact I've only ever played RPGs over the internet, so, what else were we going to use

(but see all you need to do is reduce your d6 to d3 by assigning pairs of values to 0, 1, 2 and you roll four times, which gives you a number expressed in base 3 between 0 and 80, and you multiply that by ten and add the roll of your d10...)

I am currently in a Shadowrun campaign where the freeware program "Chummer" is used extensively. Rather than keeping track of stats, expenses, equipment and the other minor details the program handily keeps track of them and I can get all the necessary stats out without writing down everything or going through a dozen books.

I am also in a campaign where we use google docs and Excel to keep track of food and supplies of the clan. ...We are keeping track of how much food each individual eats and item lists. When it was just 10 or so characters, half of whom were PCs this was simple and done in a notebook. Now that there are over 100 NPCs in the clan we have already progressed to Excel at some point (because losing your sanity over calculating food usage is just silly when few lines in Excel help get the job done.) and have plans to mainly replace these homebrew rules with Harn manor rules to make things easier. (It really was a snowball effect where things kept getting more complicated but it was so gradual that simply jumping to a different ruleset was not an obvious solution until we were late in the game. And we still plan to use the original RPG rules for most of the stuff but simplify the household affairs and have those be a separate game.)

Panel one: The American cousin [Lots of Finns moved into USA decades ago and as most people have some close or at least distant relative in USA this term is quite common descriptor for them.]

"Politics requires a renewal" "I voted for Trump to shake things up a bit!"

Panel two: "My house could do with some remodeling" "I brought in this drunken monkey to wreck up the place a bit"
