LOL Science Journalism: Higgs edition

I’m sure there’s a lot more out there if I had time to look. But here’s the Boston Globe this morning, paragraph one:

To cheers and standing ovations, scientists at the world’s biggest atom smasher claimed the discovery of a new subatomic particle Wednesday, calling it “consistent” with the long-sought Higgs boson — popularly known as the “God particle” — that helps explain what gives all matter in the universe size and shape.

I suppose it’s not amazing that people go from “mass” to “size and shape” but it is lulzy.
