Bacteriology laboratory

In 1887, the first U.S. institutional* bacteriology laboratory was incorporated, the Hoagland Laboratory of Brooklyn, N.Y., founded by Dr. Cornelius N. Hoagland for original medical research. He paid over $100,00 to build and equip it at 335 Henry Street (opposite Long Island College Hospital) and gave a $50,000 endowment.. His wealth came from ownership, with his brother, of the Royal Baking Powder Company. The laboratory opened in 1888, with special departments in physiology and bacteriology. Its first director was Dr George Miller Sternberg, who identified the microbe of pneumonia in saliva. It lasted 25 years before financial failure. The building was later destroyed by fire and demolished. (*Private bacteriological labs had been established earlier by individual physicians.)«

A big corporation recently hired several cannibals in the interest of cultural diversity.
You are all part of our team now," said the HR rep during the welcoming briefing. "You get all the usual benefits and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat, but please don't eat any of the other employees."
The cannibals promised they would not. Four weeks later, their boss remarked, "You're all working very hard and I'm satisfied with you. However, one of our shipping clerks has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to her?" The cannibals all shook their heads no.
After the boss left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, "Which one of you idiots ate the shipping clerk ?" A hand rose hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals continued, "You fool --- for 4 weeks we've been eating managers and no one noticed anything. But Noooooo, you had to go and eat someone who actually does something!"
