Oughttobiography

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ott to by og rafee

Sentence: Jimmy could identify with James Bond in all the books and movies. With his dashing good looks and suave,debonair comportment and je ne sais quoi, he could relate to James Bond, Agent 007, "License to Kill". He thought Ian Fleming had written an Oughttobiography for Jimmy when he wrote his books, as the similarities were very evident, if one had a "GoldenEye" for details. When he went for his annual physical, it was "Dr.No"; When he bought vodka (for his martinis, shaken, not stirred) it was "From Russia With Love"; when he got engaged it was "Diamonds are Forever"; when he got married, it was "Goldfinger"; when he got his hair done, it was "Live and Let Dye"; If he couldn't get an appointment, he could "Dye Another Day", because "Tomorrow Never Dyes"; when he bowled, it was "ThunderBall"; when he went hunting, it was "A View to a Kill"; when he played tennis with the Queen, it was "On Her Majesty's Secret Service"; when he went to the optometrist, it was "For Your Eyes Only"; when he enlisted in NASA's space gardening program, he became "Moonraker" and when he ate seafood, instead of kalamari, he ordered "Octopussy". Yes, Jimmy shared a bond with James Bond, he could scare "The Living Daylights" out of anyone who tried to steal his Aston Martin. When he got bored, he would head to "Casino Royale." He enjoyed a"Quantum of Solace" when he was caught speeding chasing "The Spy Who Loved Me" and after Blofeld's men, he was clocked at 95 mph by the "Man With The Golden Gun". There was some "Quantum of Solace" in the fact, he had to find a new pad,with all the best of Q's gadgetry. Although Jimmy was a citizen of this world,he thought "The World Is Not Enough"!

Etymology: Ought to (should, had better, need to) & Autobiography (a biography (life story) of yourself)

petaj didn't realise you had a james bond story when i came up with my word - petaj, 2008-11-17: 04:37:00

petaj Piercing humour, give us some Moore cos I'm feeling lazenby and singing like a connery. - petaj, 2008-11-17: 04:46:00

There's a lot of Bonding going on here, Walther PPK! One of the best lines from the movies was in Moonraker, when James (Roger Moore)and Lois Chiles are making love in zero gravity on a shuttle on their way back to Earth. M asks what is he doing?(because he can see them on the monitor) and Q answers, "I think he's attempting re-entry!" - Nosila, 2008-11-17: 20:36:00
