  Oh yes, it was very much A Thing.  Lots of people had them, technical
or otherwise, in the 70s.  When I was growing up we always had one of
these around Christmas.  Some folks my grandmother worked with made them
and gave them out to their coworkers and they were much loved.  They
were always painted with that gaudy gold spray paint.  I will never
forget those silly things. :-)
