Update! 5th Force nomenclature revised

Hot on the heels (and up the sides and over the seat of your car and on your trousers) of the breaking news story on the discovery of the 5th fundamental force of nature, the International Physical Union, the governing body of physicists worldwide, has revised the name of the fundamental particles that carry the 5th force from "shitons" to "steptons".

"We're really very excited about this", commented Prof Helga Hundscheisse, Nobel laureate, and head of the IPU committee that recommended the change.
