I've had this for years- don't know where I got it but thought you all might be amused.

                                                   "LAB HIERARCHY"

Chief Pathologist
    Leaps tall building in a single bound
       Is more powerful than a locomotive
          Is faster than a speeding bullet
             Walks on water,
                 Gives policy to God

Associate Pathologist
    Leaps short buildings in single bound
        Is more powerful than a switch engine
          Is just as fast as a speeding bullet
            Walks on water if sea is calm
                Talks with God

The Department Head
     Leaps short buildings with a running start and favorable winds
        Is almost as powerful as a switch engine
           Is faster than a speeding bullet
            Walks on water in an indoor pool
                Talks with God if special request is approved

Director of Laboratories
    Rarely clears a Quonset hut
        Loses tug of war with locomotive
           Can fire a speeding bullet
            Swims well
               Is occasionally addressed by God

Associate Director of Laboratories
    Makes high marks on the walls when trying to leap tall buildings
        Is run over by locomotives
           Can sometimes handle a gun without inflicting self-injury
              Dog paddles
               Talks to animals

   Runs into building
     Recognizes locomotives two out of three times
        Is not issued ammunition
         Can stay afloat with a life jacket
           Talks to walls

Chief Technologist
     Falls over doorstep when trying to enter building
       Says "look at the choo-choo"
          Wets themselves with a water pistol
            Plays in mud puddles
               Mumbles to Themselves

       Lifts tall buildings and walks under them
         Kicks locomotives off the tracks
           Catches speeding bullets in their teeth and eats them
            Freezes water with a single glance
                      They are God
