A Limerick A Day


The yet-to-be-titled 25th Bond film will reveal Lashana Lynch as the new 007

There’s many a thespian guy
Who has played Fleming’s fictional spy
But now his code name
Has gone to a dame
Which may leave leave some fans asking why

      Good Irish name; can’t wait to hear her speak:

      “C’mere to me now Dr.No or whatever you call yourself – we’ll have none of that malarkey around here”.

    Couldn’t they just have made a new spy series, focused on her? It could be in the same cinematic universe, Marvel style. Let it sink or swim on its on merits, and let the James Bond series continue as, well, James Bond.

      I think I agree with you actually. I think it’s a fair question.

      Is James Bond still James Bond if he is no longer an alcohol swilling philandering relic?

      I’ll reserve judgement for now.

    I do not see a problem here. The ’00’ system always said it was the code, and they changed as needed – most often in the case of poor old 009. So the 007 code is passed on, so what?

    What is more interesting is whether this kills the ‘James Bond’ as a code name conspiracy, or adds to it. If it adds, then what would the new code be?

    The names Bond, Jaime Bond!

      I believe he retires/resigns/gets sacked from the service. Something like that. So the 007 designation shifts to another agent. In this case Ms. Lynch. James Bond will most likely still be a white middle aged male but who knows. S’all makeyup so t’is.

      I hope not. This is positively tame by comparison with some of the other stuff you’ve put out.

    Meh, James Bond has lost its way and all the recent ones just meld into one long sexless car chase usually involving a product placed car. I think Lashana is to James Bond what Richie Oakley is to the Sunday Business Post.

    Not really a fan of Bond (film, loved the books) but anything beats Daniel Craig, quite possibly one of the worst actors I’ve seen.

    Timothy Dalton was the real James Bond portrayal wise in my opinion and closest to Fleming’s character.
