Quantum of Solace Parodies

The poster for Quantum of Solace created one of the most striking images in the entire Bond franchise. It’s only natural then that an image that became immediately iconic of Craig’s Bond begat a legion of imitators and parodies.

James Bond Limericks: Twitter phenomenon

You asked for James Bond Limericks?
No? Well, you’ll wish you had.

An offhand Twitter comment about James Bond Limericks led to a flurry of Limericking among #Bond_age_ fans today. Below you will find the (ongoing) fruits of our labors.

@GregMcCambley

In the Living Daylights

we see an actor named Timothy.

He became Bond.

The public they yawned

and he left after two films, not three.

@GregMcCambley

Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd

Killing was all they did.

They went after Bond

but both got pwned.

One died by a flipped lid.

@echidnabot

There once was a dude called Chris Lee

Who numbered his mammaries three

Maud Adams was thrilled

After each man he killed.

Between deaths Nick Nack called out “Me!”

@p2wy

There once was a villain named Blofeld

whose villa was flooded by snowmelt

His dungeon was drenched

his henchmen wouldn’t flench

despite his best “Dr. No yell”

@p2wy, @kimmiechem2 & @007hertzrumble

There once was a Bond named Moore

whose actions one might deplore.

He starred in seven movies

and saw so many boobies

that you might call him a whore.

 @kimmiechem2

Twas a gal named Domino

with face of lilywhite snow

vowed to avenge

François’s bitter end and so,

killed evil Largo

@filmchild

There was a young man named Roger

who referred obliquely to his todger.

The girls they came.

The villains were tame.

And Grace Jones refused to be his lodger.

@007hertzrumble

Bond adored a girl named Tanya

and said put this negligee on ya.

Then Red Grant boarded the train.

Their “romance” appeared in vain

until Red didn’t know his wine from Champagna.

@p2wy

There once was henchman named Jaws,

who almost had Bond in his claws.

He saved Bond in orbit

and splashed down to earth with

a buxom young blonde in his paws.

@TRWilcox

There once was a man named Lazenby,

who entered the franchise quite brazenly.

He grappled brilliantly with Kojak,

but did the audience to Connery go back?

They left George standing there holding his Dazenby

 

Many Fashions of Ann-Margaret in Murderer’s Row

I was inspired to create the following poster-sized reference guide to the many fashions of Ann-Margaret in Murderer’s Row. So inspired, in fact, I pulled each of the images directly from the movie. It was actually harder than you’d think because of how often Ann-Margaret was thrashing around during the dance scenes. Even going frame by frame to find the right shot proved challenging. It was just a mess of hair and arms and colored lights and sometimes Dean Martin even got in the way. Can you believe that the star of the movie would get in the way of all the the fashions?!

A Week without #Bond_age_

Remember, no #Bond_age_ this week, folks! #Bond_age_ returns next week with THE SPY WHO LOVED ME!

In the meantime, here’s a reminder why I’m out this week (besides almost lopping off a finger in a “hedge clipping incident”).

Happy Birthday, 007hertzrumble

“Happy birthday, 007hertzrumble.” – Roger Moore’s alter ego, Party Moore.
