Story: Feathers or Bricks Riddle

I like this riddle because it's very simple and not complicated at all. The answer should be obvious but often times people do get this wrong or think too much on it and screw up. But here's the clever little riddle, lets see if you can solve it without help. What weighs more, a ton of bricks or a ton of feathers?

The most commonly thrown answer to this question is bricks, because they weigh more than a feather. Those thinking it's a trick question, will say feathers. And those who are smart enough know it's neither of them since a ton is a ton regardless of density.

I got it right. : ) A ton of anything is still a ton.

This one is fairly obvious unless you overthink it!

I believe a ton is a ton!
You'd have to be a bit dumb with this one to not work it out.
Adam, send it to Turnip could do some Tweeting on it!
