Sub-atomic particle. There's all sorts of the buggers - strange quarks, charmed quarks, and quarks with spin on them. There's also a cheesy spread called Quark, which just shows that if you want to attract the modern supermarket consumer to a dairy product, you should find a brand name which conjoures up an image of particle accelerators and high-speed proton collisions.
