[kuaiucvj] LEP pun

The name of Large Electron-Positron collider contained a pun: its acronym was LEP, the first three letters of "lepton", the type of particle that electrons and positrons are.

Its successor, the Large Hadron Collider, not-so-cleverly contains in its name the type of particles it collides, hadrons.
