I ranted too soon. The boys LOVE the gak. John just discovered it yesterday and he loves it too! He found it all slimed out on the table and asked why I let them get it everywhere. I didn't realize he didn't know what it was. He started to "clean" it up right before dinner and realized there's nothing to clean up! Not nearly as messy as it looks. Here are some pictures, though they are terrible because they are indoor with an ipod.
