"Bosons, however, are particles that are their own antiparticle, and they don't annihilate when they touch each other."

Wrong - charged bosons, such as the electroweak boson W+, are not their own antiparticles. And even the Z0 boson, which is its own antiparticle, annihilates.

What about Bo’sun Smee? Was he his own anti-particle? Or was he his own grandpa? I can’t remember which....

“- charged bosons, such as the electroweak boson W+”

I always appreciate a nice pair of bosons.
