Plucky British scientists have again showed that they are at the forefront of sub-atomic research by identifying, measuring and collecting the elusive God particle. The team of literally four retired lab technicians have been working out of a lock up garage in Halifax since last Tuesday.
Their spokesman explained,”Everyone knows that the centre of a Macca’s apple pie is hotter than the sun, all we had to do was reheat one in a microwave then collect the particles in a bucket. We managed to isolate three bucketfuls this morning before the particles disappeared into space or somewhere, given their inherantly short half life.”
Physicists at CERN under the French Swiss border have officially welcomed this once in a generation leap in human knowledge, but are reported to be inwardly seething that they were beaten to the discovery.
Tottenham Hotspur have indicated they would now like to look at moving into the undergroud facility as part of the legacy planning for the now obsolete particle accelerator.
