TOME, TOYOU, TO YOU, TOO!
ATEAMofJapanese researchers has stunned the international scientific community with the claim that they have discovered a THIRD Chuckle Brother. Presenting the findings at the XVIIth Concordat Internationale du Science, project leader Dr J
Shikaro said that after 10 years of research, they were finally able to confirm their discovery.
“Scientists have long posited the possibility of a third Chuckle Brother, but until now we have been unable to provide solid proof of his existence,” he told New Scientist. siblings
But before everyone buys tickets to the Chuckle Brothers stage show hoping to see three madcap siblings getting into all manner of scrapes, Shikaro advised caution.
“This third Chuckle Brother is highly unstable and exists only under lab conditions, and then for just a few millionths of a second,” he said. “However, he does exist and he increases the number of known Chuckle Brothers by 50%.”
CERN- based physicist Professor Brian Cox hailed the discovery as a milestone in science and comedy. “This
wonderful, amazing event literally rewrites the Periodic Table of Chuckle Brothers,” he told reporters. “And it opens the doors to new discovery. It’s a fast-moving science and we simply don’t know how many more Chuckle Brothers there are waiting to be discovered,” he added. plank
The properties of the new Chuckle Brother are as yet unknown, and the researchers were unsure as to whether or not he would be able to hit his brothers with a plank under his arm, or spill a bucket of wallpaper paste onto them from a ladder.
“We don’t know enough about him yet,” said Dr Shikaro. “It has been suggested that he may exist in a state of quantum flux, with the very act of observation rendering him unmeasurable. So we may never know,” he added.
Questioned about possible names for the newly-discovered Chuckle Brother, Shikaro was uncertain. “We were thinking perhaps of Meson or Lepton. Or perhaps Dennis,” he said
Oh, brother!: The Chuckles.
