SO A HIGGS BOSON PARTICLE GOES INTO A CATHOLIC CHURCH …

So a Higgs Boson particle goes into a Catholic church, and the priest recognises it and says, ‘Get out of here! We don’t want your type in here.’ ‘Why? What have I done?’ says the particle. ‘You call yourself the God particle’, says the priest: ‘that’s blasphemy. Get out!’ To which the Higgs Boson says, ‘But without me, how can you have mass?’

    1. I bet the Principal was all bright and cheerful at morning prayers when he cracked this one … it’s enough to keep a sleepy theology student awake!! 😉
