Higgs spends Nobel money on pimped-out SUV

NOBEL Prize recipient Peter Higgs has spent his prize money on a customised lilac sports utility vehicle.

Higgs, professor emeritus of theoretical physics at the University of Edinburgh, said: “I’ve dropped some serious Nobel cheddar on this bad boy.

“It’s sick.”

Higgs, who is currently deliberating between the license plates PART1CLE or H1GG5, said: “In the place where I grew up, physics was the only route out.

“I saw neighbourhood physicists in their sports cars and designer clothes and thought yeah, I gotta get some theories.”
