image for Parts of a atom redifined
Sometimes, the mama-tron and the papa-tron don't get on, resulting in fissile reactions

In a dramatic twist to the decades of student life, scientist Dr. Hooker Le-Kiss published his new discovery of the 'mama-tron' and 'papa-tron'. In what he discribed as a new era for physics, he told reporters that his years of hard work had "finally paid off".

When asked further about these new particles, the scientist promptly replied that a neutron, which is the core of an atom, was actually made up of mama-tron and papa-tron. The mama-tron was chiefly reponsible for the weight of the proton, like all female sex in this universe, and the papa-tron was chiefly responsible for the binding forces and keeping the electrons close by.

When asked how he had discovered these new particles, he told us of the experiment he had performed. According to the experiment he divided the neutron such that one was massless and the other chargeless. When he joint it back they seemed to make love and formed electrons.

The student commmunity seemed to be the most angry with this new discovery, and told reporters "We have spent 10 years studying it in details and now they say its not like that. We have just lost 10 years of our life studying nothing!"
