What happens if a USB flash drive gets hit, really hard from the side, while it's plugged in?

(Dumb question of the day.) Will it break? Will it still be usable if it breaks? What happens to the port? I just see them sticking out of computers all the time, and think, That's an Accident Waiting to Happen - whack!
I thought I'd ask before I learn the hard way.
