The Archives are your friends! Straight from WD's old tech section:
BorbBorbs Now, these are unique things. BorbBorbs are somewhat squishy balls colored like Bulborbs that explode on contact with their target. So a Red BorbBorb would be red with white spots, an Orange BorbBorb would be orange with black spots. BorbBorbs are about the size of bomb rocks. They're used as ammunition, but are very unpredictable. The explosion they create is also about that of a bomb rock, but every time you fire a BorbBorb, you never know what kind will come out. Here are the possibilities.
Red BorbBorb: Has a bigger explosion than normal. Orange BorbBorb: Travels to its target much faster than ordinary. Hairy BorbBorb: Explodes as normal, but leaves a bunch of white hair behind to make it hard to see. Spotty BearBear: Bursts into smaller BearBears that all explode, doing widespread damage. Air BorbBorb: Homes onto the nearest foe. Green BorbBorb: Explodes into slimy goo, which sticks to things and reduces mobility. Brown BorbBorb: Plants itself in the ground or wall and acts like a mine. Fiery BlaxBlax: Leaves a bunch of fire where it blew up. Emperor BlaxBlax: There's a random chance of this happening, which is quite small. An Emperor BlaxBlax is extremely powerful, much bigger than normal, and causes a lot of damage.

They seem a little random now, but I guess they're fair if the various types aren't drastically different (meaning that you could get out of a bad situation you landed yourself in just out of luck). Use them if you want.
