It's almost contemptable to involve the real periodic table, but the analogy is too good.

New Periodic Table Element Discovery: Governmentium



Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science.The new element, Governmentium (Gv), 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 Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.



A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from four days to four years to complete.



Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 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, Governmentium' s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.



This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believethat Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

Perfect timing. Our state legislative session opens on Monday.
