The Higgs Bosom

So Peter Higgs, the guy who comes up with the God particle doesn’t want us calling it that anymore because (a) he’s an atheist and (b) it was a joke. But calling the God particle the Higgs boson is not gonna be an improvement. Because it sounds like breasts, not just any breasts, but breasts of a misspelled, old-fashioned variety that go with the kind of strangely-ribbed pink underwear that some kid’s grandma, gripped by a spirit of fierce conservation, turns into the face of a sixth birthday present doll. If that’s what the universe is made of, oh Jesus.
