I have a set of Alpha space station donkey patches with different experiments on each. Does anyone know the origin and meaning of the patches?

These were done by Randy Wagner (Eagle One Aerospace) back in the 90's. The joke of course is that they read (from memory) Jack Ass, Kiss Ass, Rat Ass etcetera.

I also have a full set of these patches that I purchased a while ago. Interesting play on the abbreviations.
