This was funny, had to share.
A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element has been named "Governmentium" - GOV for short. GOV has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.
These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since GOV has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of GOV causes one action to take over four days to complete, when it would normally take less than a second. GOV has a normal half-life of 4 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.
In fact, GOV's mass will actually increase overtime, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.
When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium - an element which radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons, but twice as many morons. If you are not clear on this explanation of Governmentium, just send a copy this to your Senators and Congressman, and ask for a more detailed explanation from a "Special Committee on Elements". You should receive an interesting reply in about four years.
