What a Higgs Boson may look like (not really)
Enlarged to show texture
Ok, so not really, but the picture’s really cool
And the hand thing’s not real, either
And the lightning thingy isn’t a particle
Ok, ok, it’s all fake, but it looks awesome
You still get the particle, it just doesn’t look like this
Better than what everyone else sees…
NO BOSON FOR YOU!

The Higgs Boson. So popular with the mainstream media, it’s been labeled the “God particle.” Postulated in 1964 and a much sought-after lynchpin in the standard model of particle physics, physicists have been looking for it for decades. Millions of dollars have been spent in the search. Fermilab’s Tevatron looked for it. The Large Hadron Collider will be looking for it. Everyone wants it. No one’s found it.
But now, this massive elementary particle can be YOURS for only $99.99 plus shipping and handling! Be the talk around the water cooler by bringing one of these babies into work with you! Impress your friends! Gain fame and fortune (well, at least in the physics community, for whatever that’s worth).
“This is so cool, I ordered a baker’s dozen of ’em!” says one particle physicist, who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent. “I work in connection with the LHC (Large Hadron Collider)…I think maybe some day, maybe this month, I’ll bring a few in and just sprinkle them around. When my colleagues walk in, I’ll point to one, maybe one on the eraser of my pencil, and say “hey, look at this! Lookie here!” The LHC works!” He smiles. “Huh. It’ll make their day!”
It’s a fundamental particle! It’s massive! Everyone else wants one! And now it can be yours!

Note from QSD
Unfortunately, there are some shipping problems with this product which are delaying new orders.
As much as GETTIN’ HIGGY WITH IT assures us and its customers that the Higgs Boson is indeed a “massive” boson, it doesn’t appear that GETTIN’ HIGGY WITH IT has devised packaging with a fine enough mesh to hold the particles for a prolonged period of time. (Elementary particles are smaller than mosquitoes…who knew?) Shipment to any place which requires more than 10 x -35 seconds has been problematic. We are working with GETTIN’ HIGGY WITH IT and hope to have this problem resolved soon.
Great product! Much cheaper than building a large hadron collider, Sept 1, 2011
By Uncle LHC (Geneva, Switzerland)
This is the greatest product ever. SOME people spent millions and millions of $$$$ to build a certain large hadron collider on the Franco-Swiss border. I spent about $100 a pop and got a dozen of them. Who’s the smart one now, huh? Who’s your daddy?
Not really that massive, but still cool, July 4, 2011.
By The Lost Boson (Portland, OR)
Well, I guess I just didn’t know what to expect. The description says that this should be a MASSIVE particle, but it didn’t look that massive to me. I had a heck of a time finding it in the box. They shipped it in some kind of mosquito netting (which works great against mosquitoes, btw, I’ve tried it out in my back yard while playing with my little “Higgy”), which it slipped right through, but it got caught in that darn foam peanut packaging…you know, the stuff that they say will last a million years or so without decomposing. Whatever. Bad for the environment, but good for Higgs bosons.
Anyway, “Higgy” is really happy now and all the neighborhood kids love him. Who knew? Highly recommended.
Zero spin, baby!, March 15, 2011.
By Higgs Hunter (NY, NY)
Theory was right, man! Zero spin on this baby! Goes great with my leptons and quarks…they have a party every night. Rock on, particles!
