John Merrick the elephant man was cruely taunted his whole life.

People said to him, your the ugliest man in the world.

But he didnt mind, he was very thick skinned

A family went to the zoo for a day out, but when they got there they were incredibly disappointed to find it only contained one animal, a small dog.

It was a Shit-Zoo.

He went to bed and instead of propping up his head like usual, he let it go back and he broke his neck.

I heard different, there was so many rumours the ones i heard were

to many sticky buns

allergy to peanuts

and poachers, who hunted him down to make some chess sets

i just googled it up and what actually happened was a bearded lady shot a dwarf out of a cannon. and it landed on his elephant head freak accident

Hijack again!

The movie "Mask" about the real like Rocky Dennis (with Cher playing his mom Rusty), had a similar genetic disorder that causes the skull and calcifications to grow non stop out of proportion, crushing the brain and spine.

Rocky had craniodiaphyseal dysplasia.

See this please for more info.

John Merrick had Neurofibramatosis.

Please read this (with photo and Biography of John Merrick and yes I did take this topic seriously!

I take pride in being at least twice as ugly as the Elephant Man.
