well, actually, the point of using alt text is to convey meaning when an
image conveys meaning. "man lying in grass" really doesn't tell me anything.
Why is he lying in grass? What should I do about it?  "Click me!" tells me
what the image is there for albeit non-descriptively.  

I would put in the alt and title text something like "click image to (do
whatever the button does)"
