I'd do that with a two dimernsional table.
The table would be indexed by the computers choice and
the human choice and the outcome stored as a value.
Thus it becomes
outcome = results[computer.choice][human.choice]
if outcome == 0: print "Computer Wins"
elif outcome == 1: print "Human wins"
else: print 'Draw!'
Another interesting variation is to create a single
Player class and make human and computer instances.
Pass in the function for setting choice as a
parameter to init... That way your code
consists of a Player class, two selection functions
and the lookup/display code that could sit in main()
This isn't any "better", as such, just different...
