The famous quote from “The Elephant Man”, play and film, is “I am not an ANIMAL! I am a HUMAN BEING!”.
It’s absolutely chilling and perfectly worded to make us rethink our perception of those who appear different, especially those as deformed as Joseph Merrick.
I don’t imagine you meant any harm, but the art of quoting or paraphrasing is subtle, and I think you minimized the joke by mis-quoting the original.

That’s exactly the kind of thing that makes me get the hots for 3D printing. Well, that, and the prospect of being able to home-bake the lost battery cover of your vintage collectible electronic toy.
Looks like something out Resident Evil. Gross.

+1 for the Venture Bros. reference.
Little club soda get that right out.
Club soda’d fix nearly anythang.
