What’s up with 666, the “mark of the beast”?

Sadly, many people forget that 6x6 is the lumber of the beast.
I don't think I want to use a signature

Coming to Fox this summer: Mark, of the beast. When Mark started working for the beast he didn't realise what he was getting into.

Just what I saw
In my old dreams were they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me

'Cause in my dreams
It's always there
The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair

...and so forth.
It may be because I'm a drooling simpleton with the attention span of a demented gnat, but would you mind explaining everything in words of one syllable. 140 chars max.

I had to read this three times before realizing it was a bad pun. The "L" just didn't register! And I'm usually a big fan of bad puns!

Me cellphone number, without area code, contains five sixes, three of which are in a row. This has freaked a few people out.

Jerrod Kushner recently sold 666 5th Avenue in New York. I've eaten at the restaurant there, and we referred to the building as Spook Central.
