It could be mentioned that the Higgs signature shown is probably a Higgs->top anti-top/bottom anti-bottom->jet-jet signature, and most certainly not the clearest observed channel right now of Higgs->gamma gamma (as there is no neutral signature, which would be a track appearing some space from the center, and there are clearly two jets to be seen). This is a difficult channel to observe, and is much more important in higher Higgs mass regions than the now observed, where b-bbar is present, but gamma gamma is much easyer to observe.[[Special:Contributions/85.164.251.29|85.164.251.29]] 13:11, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

The title-text could also be a reference to Bugs Bunny, many episodes had such play-on-words as title. ("A witch's tangled hare", "A Feather in his Hare", "Compressed Hare", many more...) -- ‎Gegueure (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
