    Alpha is the one to whom others defer. Beta is always second in command. Omega is subservient.

    To explain via nature...

    The alpha male is he who has the reddest behind...

    This sign of masculinity attracts the lady baboons.

    The beta male does not have such a powerful attractive feature.  He therefore has to sit by a rock and watch the alpha males mate with all the sexy female baboons, while the only thing he can do about it is 'masterbeta' by himself (hence the name 'beta male')

    Only a beta male would ask a question like that - an alpha male, like me, already knows the answer wink

    I think I must be an omega male.  I am always expected to do the cooking, and no one ever listens to a word I say, not even my cat Dennis. And my arse is of the palest hue.

    There are alphas, betas and those of us who are off doing other things while the boys play their games.
