Yesterday we reported CERN announced the discovery of a new boson which is 99.977% likely to be the Higgs boson. They announced this with comic sans. (Problem?) Not to be outdone by the humor of a comics sans trolling, the internet and Twitterverse also cracked wise. Below we’ve collected some of our favorite Higgs boson memes and tweets regarding the discovery.
But first, we have a video of Stephen Hawking’s response to the news. That grin when he talks about losing a $100 bet is my new anti-drug. *takes a bong hit* Well, I didn’t say it was working.
