BONUS: Steve Austin jumping over a fence:

As pal Dorian said to me when I was showing him these cards the other day…”you’re now hearing that ‘bionic’ sound effect, aren’t you?” (NOTE: this likely will not apply to folks below a certain age. Also, get off my lawn.)

    All day at work today I’m going to make that “bionic sound” whenever I reach for something.

  • Rich Handley says:

    A friend of mine once noted, “So, he’s got bionic legs and a bionic arm, which means he can run fast and lift things. Got it. So… without a bionic spine, how isn’t his back crushed the first time he tries it?”

  • CW says:

    I still occasionally make that bionic sound when I’m out hiking or running. Yeah, I’m a sad lonely person … ;)

  • Bear says:

    I only discovered last week that Kevin Smith is writing a Bionic Man comic. How did something like that happen with so little fanfare? Is it selling *at all* well?

  • Chad says:

    Were the bionics really necessary to get over that steeplechase jump?

    30: Steve could have saved himself the trouble and just gone around that fence. Or was he showing off? “No, no. You keep running. I’m going to leap gaily over this fence and then I’m still going to catch you! I might even go back and move it to the highest rung one time! HAHA!”

  • philip says:

    I just noticed the awkward ™ marks on all the cards. Probably should have sent copy to Legal before you sent these to the printer.

    Also “Steve hurdles fence” and has no time for grammar.

    Bear: It’s not so much that Smith is writing a Bionic Man comic as it is that he wrote an unproduced screenplay, which others are turning into a comic.

  • Bear says:

    Ah, I see! Thanks.

  • JB says:

    @philip: I noticed the TMs, too. I wonder if they ever managed to get the term (R)egistered… if so, they have many claims for infringement since then… :)

    We didn’t get that channel.

    I often employ “we will rebuild him, stronger than he was before, faster, …” into everyday conversation. It’s a surprisingly useful phrase.

  • Pietro says:

    That bionic sound, along with the original Gundam servo motors sound, is the best sound effect of the late 70s.
