The Name's Bond - James Bond

Some 25 years back I had a colleague whose name was, genuinely, James Bond. Now we were all too sensible to make silly remarks about it (after all I'd heard all the stupid jokes about Wilmut by the time I was eight), but obviously James was used to this and had had time to work out a strategy. One day one of the Newsroom staff said to him 'It must be odd being called James Bond'. James looked puzzled and said 'Why?'. The journalist said 'Well, because of James Bond... you know?' James said 'No... who?'... this went on for some time until the journalist wandered away discouraged. Well done, 007.
