All too powerful divine force. Rules your life, keeps you in line. In america it is very common to "stick it to the man", but watch out, The Man sticks back. You go and stick him with a call in to work sick on 4th of July? He'll come right back, bend you over, and stick it to you right back by he won't fire you from your shitty job, but gives you double the hours of nights and weekend shifts the next week, just daring you to stick him again and try and quit your job. When he sticks back, he sticks back hard. Few have defied The Man and have survived to tell about it. You fuck with The Man, then The Man fucks you.
Matt and Andrew foolishly thinking they could stick it to The Man for weeks on end were skipping school and participating in outdoor activites. For a couple days they thought they had beaten The Man until they capsized their canoe, losing not only valuable posessions, but also their dignity as at the next day at school they were laughed upon by children who understood not to fuck with The Man.

The proverbial man.

He is ambitious. He is what is the head of the world, and nobody likes the man. He ruins careers. He ruins dreams. He sets standards that no one can live up to. He abuses those close to him.

The man is an over ambitious, heartless twat.
You're the man.

Society. Government. Void. Anyone that gets you down. Makes people sell out. Makes things lame. Makes me sad.
You gotta stick it to the man.

Able to have women of all ages, size and races want a man without him initiating or doing anything of any kind to persuade the female species.
Alfred Keith is the man, all he did was walk in the room and every woman dropped their panties in front of him.
