Dr. Seuss Writes A Grant Application

Given that I know that many of the people who read this are grad students, have been grad students, work in grant funded labs, and/or have otherwise suffered thru the scientific grant writing process, I really must give y'all a pointer to a humorous piece of doggerel just penned by my talented sister jatg.

"These things we need to bring the future today"
Please fund our projects and we'll shout HOORAY!"
