Item TSHIRT-032
One Quark, Two Quark
Red Quark, Blue Quark

design detail

A whimsical examination of the quark model of subatomic particles.
The design is approximately 9.5 inches by 9.2 inches.

Given the names that physicists have chosen for the fundamental particles and their properties, it seems logical somehow to engage in a little Geiselian* treatment of the subject. The full text of the verses at the bottom reads:

Quarks are Fermions,
And leptons are Fermions;
Quarks make up hadrons
Like neutrons and protons

Electrons are leptons
With charge minus-one!
Neutrinos, however,
Are leptons with none!

Eight gluons carry
The Strong Nuclear Force
Which binds the quarks
Making hadrons, of course!

Photons and gluons
Are bosons you know,
And the bosons are what
Make the Forces go.

Two quarks make up
Most all of the matter
But we only see them
When we make them scatter.

The boson named Higgs
Was very elusive,
But the proof it exists
Is considered conclusive.

From there to here,
From here to there,
Fundamental particles
Are everywhere!
