In an exclusive Skype interview, the now-famous Higgs Boson took time away from the glass-clinking physicists in Geneva to share his secret:
ADMIRER ~ Why are you smiling?
BOSON ~ Because everyone is so amazed when actually I’ve been around all along.
ADMIRER ~ Reminds me of my parents when I finally found the hidden eggs on Easter.
BOSON ~ They hid them WANTING you to find them. When you did, they were pleased.
ADMIRER ~ For a long time I thought it was the Easter Bunny.
BOSON ~ They let you think so til it was time to realize the eggs were MEANT to be found.
ADMIRER ~ Funny how some kids react after they find there’s no Easter Bunny.
BOSON ~ Deciding if there’s no Bunny hiding them, maybe there’s no Parent either.
ADMIRER ~ Sorta sad.
BOSON ~ No, sorta silly. Silly enough for them to calculate I hid myself.
ADMIRER ~ But these guys are our best-and-brightest.
BOSON ~ [SMALL COSMIC SIGH]] Oh dear. This hunt is going to take longer than I thought!
