So if I can discover the "next" element and name it and then make nano tubes I can have a VULVA! I'll be in the lab...
We're awarding today a much-coveted Vulture Vulgar Acronym trophy (VULVA) to China's Dachi Yang, Guowen Meng, Shuyuan Zhang, Yufeng Hao, Xiaohong An, Qing Wei, Min Yeab, and Lide Zhanga for a truly breathtaking contribution to the genre in their snappily-titled Electrochemical synthesis of metal and semimetal nanotube–nanowire …
Do you use Beryllium nanotubes to go around corners?

All this is in a bid to be allowed to don my coat and leave the premises.
Mind you, keep at it long enough and my employers may just make my wish come true. Premenantly.
... and the number of times the C acronym is used in the text is quite large. And it's Royal Soc Chemistry journal, paper marked as "Received (in Cambridge, UK)" ... it is implausible that noone would have noticed this. But then, I suppose, it is the obvious acronym, generated in the same way as exisiting ones .... anything else would have looked odd, in a sense.
...please! I'll wager that the title of The Register's award and the attention devoted to a copper-based expletive/body part pun are both silly and offensive to lots of readers.
When The Register pulls its punches, it recalls Punch (of blessed memory). When it doesn't, it smacks of losers like Beavis and Butthead sniggering "He said ... heh-heh heh-heh heh-heh".
Please note that B&B were themselves the real object of satire, much in the tradition of German Lausbuben (rascals) like Max and Moritz, and Struwelpeter.
Why would The Register voluntarily turn itself into a similar object of derision?
