    Ah, but be careful what you order.

    After all, we know from pop culture that, even in the 70s, actual bionics — the marvels of engineering and technology that mimic human life — would’ve cost, at a minimum, several hundred thousand dollars. After all, it cost OSI nearly six million dollars to make Steve Austin better than he was before. Better. Stronger. Faster.

    This item, if you carefully observe the punctuation in the title, is not made of the same miraculous technology that saved Steve Austin or Jaime Sommers but, rather, a mere two onics.

    Order at your own risk, lest you be disappointed to descramble to coded message and find that it simply tells you to drink more Ovaltine.

    I think I’ve seen this item sold at the local adult novelty store.

    I fell for this as a kid.

    They sent me a rubber glove with an inked “on-off” switch stMped on the back.
