A nick name applied to Dr Dan Poulter, Minister for Health in the UK coalition Government that took office in 2010. The epithet emerged after Dr Poulter's apparently spurious claims to have regularly worked over 100hours per week when training as a junior doctor. This would have been illegal following the European Working Time Directive (EWT) and exposed the hospitals Dr Poulter worked for to considerable fines.
The following is a hypothetical Twitter conversation.
Dr Poulter - Whut up yo? Things have changed for these young'uns since back in the dayz. I be puttin in post-EWT WORK fo my scrilla
Dr Deveson (Arch Nemesis of D100) - Sit yo punk ass
down fool, and quit 'yo bitchin
. You don *know* work. You a D100!
Dr Dan - You crossed a line mane
. Im oudda Twitter. This shit is whack

s The d100 was invented by Lou Zocchi, and is patented as the "Zocchihedron". Although the d100 is not a true polyhedra, it is a sphere with 100 surfaces. There can be somewhat of a learning curve for reading the Zocchihedron correctly, but... It's much geekier to roll a d100 for a percentage rolls than 2 d10's.
Palladium games often require a lot of percentile rolls, that's why I bought my first d100.
Haha suckaz, critical hit, doing 2d100 damage, take that!
