    For a second there I though you were saying cavemen had discovered and then painted not only a Higgs Boson but a different variety (or 'species' ) of one that physicists hadn't even theorized existed; this would be vastly more "amusing" than any name it is given.

    AFAIK there has not been found a caveman particle accelerator. I may be wrong but I think the evidence is overwhelming for that stance, as dubious as it sounds
