It could be becausee some people might not know what the Higgs Boson is. For those of you who do not know there is all sorts of information here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higgs_boson

A quick summary:

Quote:
The Higgs boson (nicknamed the God particle) is a massive scalar elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model in particle physics. At present there are no known fundamental scalar particles in nature.

The Higgs boson is the only Standard Model particle that has not yet been observed.


With regards to the joke:

Quote:
If the Higgs boson begins creating mass in your esophagus or stomach before you reach a hospital, you will need to perform an immediate bosonectomy on yourself.


I usually get this after eaching chili or broccoli ;)

"scalar"

a variable quantity that cannot be resolved into components


I don't believe there's any single particle that can not be broken down. I believe there is no edge of the universe, and there is no single thing that everything else is made of.

I probably read about this thing before and lost interest as soon as I got to the scalar part, which is why I didn't get the joke and had the urge to crack a joke about an ex-girlfriend who.
