Alpha and Omega....first and the last...is the man supposed to be God? I can live with that. It probably means Anarchy and bad luck (upside down horseshoe)....or Nihilism, with a funky N.

*laugh*

It can also just mean "the beginning and the end" . . . which in the case of the Man, a 3-dimensional object, could be humorously literal.

Here is my beginning!

Here is my end, cha cha cha!

Oh crap, if that's the case he's way to small. Next year he'll need to triple in size.
