In a recent contest, The Washington Post asked readers to dream up new
elements for the Periodic Table. Among the best of the batch:

Limbaughium (Lb) - The heaviest known element. It possesses an
ever-expanding mass. Very white. Acidic. Emits heat but no
light. Instantly polarizes all elements that come in contact with
it. Repels protons and electrons; attracts only morons.

Billclintium (Bc) - With a slick appearance and slimy texture, this
element undergoes a series of interesting changes when in hot water.

Canadium (Eh) - Similar to Americium, but a little denser. Much more
rigid. Often called Boron.

Innofensium (Pc) - Precisely equal numbers of electrons, protons,
neutrons, leptons, quarks. Completely inert, utterly useless, but
smells like a rose.

Newtium (Nt) - Extreme irritant. Carries a strong negative
charge. Does not possess magnetic properties. Can be purchased

Quaylium (Vp) - Einsteinium it ain't.

Budweisium (Ps) - Has no taste or smell; is often indistinguishable
from water.

Cabmium (Cb) - Found in abundance, except when needed. Exists in two
states, in motion and at rest. When in motion, it cannot be stopped,
no matter what you do. Cabmium has a charge associated with it. The
charge is variable, and scientists have not determined the formula
for calculating it.

Politicium (Po) - Contains a great deal of gas. Similar to radon in
that it can reach lethal concentrations in the House.

Congress (Cg) - Atomic number 525. Can never be found in a solution.

Snot (Sn) - Bonds forever with corduroy.

Kryptonite (S) - Kills Superman. That's it. That's all it does.
