Wii Remote – How durable is it?

Wii RemoteI was playing a little Cooking Mama: Cook Off this weekend and smacked my Wii Remote on the corner of the coffee table while I was grinding some meat. (..in the game, you sickos..) Its glossy coat is chipped a little bit, but the remote still works fine and hasn’t been fazed by the abuse. Considering how responsive the Wii Remote is for tilting and pointing, I can’t believe how durable it actually is.

Anyone else smack, smash, or smoosh a Wii Remote only to have it work just fine?
