BEARD: Yeah, they've been going around all morning giving stern talks to those of us who haven't published in a while. It's rough. it's like our four hour work days are not enough for them. They're treating us like animals!
KLOWNUS: I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!
