I am a machine which produces sentences. A fish is a machine that produces other fishes, usually of the same species. If I were an amoeba, it would be unlikely I would ever divide. I would subvert the amoebic order - not through any sense of rebelliousness but merely because of an overall listlessness and vague sense of embarrassment.
