World’s largest ball of paint
Mike Carmichael of Indiana owns the World's Largest Ball of Paint. It started out back in 1977 as an ordinary baseball -- and then he began to paint it. Many thousands of coats later, it weighs over 3000 pounds, has become a roadside attraction, and is recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the biggest ball of paint in the world (I'm not sure if there are any competitors to the title).
According to Mike's website
, for $10 he'll write anything you want on his paint ball and send you a picture of it. His website was last updated in 2007, so I'm not sure if the offer still stands, but if it does I'd be tempted to put a message from Weird Universe on it. Any suggestions?

Looks like Mike dropped the ball on the website. Or, maybe, he just painted himself into a corner and can't get out.

There's your obsessive-compulsive disorder, right there!

Hard telling if Mike watches his web site or not. But I have painted a layer on the ball and it was... different. If you really want to see something on it, I might be able to make it happen if you get back to me in the next week. I will be up that way (he lives in my hometown) and can swing by and see if he is around.
