Paper, Spock, Scissors
Here's an illustration of Mr. Spock spocking some up-and-coming Vulcan students. "Spocking" is the Vulcan equivalent of "owning." FYI. Since Paper/Rock/Scissors is a game that can't really be won by logic, Spock ensures victory by playing his might trump card: the Vulcan salute.
The pupils, not willing to say that paper nor rock nor scissors are more powerful than their cultural symbol of prosperity, have no choice but to admit defeat. They may have lost this round, but they have gained a valuable lesson of thinking outside-the-box.
I'm actually going to include the black/white version. I love how it looks sans color; you can see how the illustration started off. This one was all pen (brush and Micron) and then colored in Photoshop.
