Jabberwocky

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One two! One two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?”

For the last few months I have looked everywhere for the squelchinos and squarkions. Under the bedsheets, high in the trees. Side of the toolshed, deep under seas. But alas, blind as I may be, they have failed to materialise, even though we now all tread the same path. Where have they gone?

    Hee hee, we should all step back once in a while, think of the mathematician Lewis Carroll and not take things too seriously. Physics is full of particles that don’t exist.

    Hi Louise

    Yes, too many particles with silly names that don’t exist. But don’t worry. Soon we will have proved that they don’t exist.
