The Higgs-Boson particle got discovered last week, after its existence was theorized half a century ago. Also known as the “God Particle,” Higgs-Boson is basically the thing that proves that our current model of physics works.
CUE SUPERGEEK SQUEE.
“A Higgs-Boson particle walks into a church and says, ‘You can’t have mass without me.”
“HIGGS-BOSON PARTICLES WILL NEVER GET OLD.”
“No, but they’ll decay within 4 muons…”
“SCHISM IN THE CHURCH OF HIGGS & BOSON!”
“Thank Higgs-Boson it’s Friday!” and so on.
But this morning I realized the epitome of “Writing geeky jokes about the Higgs-Boson,” and I don’t know if I can pull it off, because I think it might require actual knowledge of science.
I want lyrics to a CERN/LHC/Higgs-Boson cover of U2’s “Mysterious Ways.”
Somebody get on that.
