Periodic Disappointment

With the official recognition of Ununbium, the periodic table now has an extra block.

Oh well...there go all my "This one goes up to 1-11" transition metal jokes.

They're trying to come up with a fun name for it. Until then, maybe I can come up with a good shoulder-shrugging "Who-knew-bium" line? Or, maybe a good Jujube-UUB joke?

"Man...these are so old, it's like chewing UUBs, not Jujubes!"
