They're pretty much the same density as your average Nerf ball. The "SICK" series Madballs are a lot heavier though since they're made of rubber and filled with all sorts o' gunk.

Hehe thanks. It's scary to think that's the WTF Ball is still lurking out there somewhere isn't it?

Yeah, that ball is definitely the thickest of the bunch, but as you can see, it's well worth the extra squeezing effort to make those brains bubble out like that. Mmmm tasty!

Probably because multi-million dollar ad campaigns try to target people by speaking to them in a way that they think is "hip" - but it comes off as nothing but insincere instead. They're writing/talking about stuff because they have to... I'm simply doing it because it's what I love to do. Just like you guys, I'm a big fan of this kind o' stuff, so hopefully all this stuff I say is easy for you to relate to. At least more so than your average McDonald's ad campaign

Yeah, but they were nothing to write home about, believe me. Just look 'em up on Youtube and you'll see what I mean. American Greetings actually sent me a copy of the old Gross Jokes video on DVD for some laughs. And when I say "laughs" I mean "tears of agony". It's just one of those things that proves they didn't need to make extra stuff for the Madballs line back then... it was fine with just the balls and nothing more.

Yeah they all look way better than ever before, that's why I can't wait for them to release the 2nd series and hopefully some of those Super Madballs.
Talent, vigor, drive...
