+1 I think we could twist this around though, e.g. we could theme the artwork on defeating the target of Goliath, posing Fedora as the David...

+1 I think there's a lot of possibilities here tho. Alexander Graham Bell, Alexander Method, or maybe the movie Moondance Alexander which is about ponies which leads to a OMG!!!!! PONIES!!@!#!@$!@$ theme!
