It’s not just the usual crop of celebrity big mouths who have said things that have offended huge numbers of people. Even national treasures have expressed some pretty strange - and often offensive - opinions too.
James Bond is a master spy, a solid hand-to-hand combatant, and a dapper dresser. But his most impressive skill must just be wordplay. The MI6 secret agent has been specializing in corny innuendo for more than 50 years, quipping his way into the hearts and beds of women around the world. Yahoo Superfan collected some of 007’s best double entendres, ranging from Sean Connery’s modest quips to Pierce Bronsnan’s blunt forehead-slappers (see: “I thought Christmas only came once a year” — as spoken to a lover named Christmas Jones).
The dashing Daniel Craig has reprised his role as James Bond for the fourth time in the upcoming Spectre, which has already broken box office records in the UK. And while we can’t wait to see the nail-biting action sequences (brilliantly imagined by director Sam Mendes), Bond’s impeccable style is also a draw. While Brioni outfitted the Bonds of yore, Mendes called his pal Tom Ford to design the well-tailored suits this time around. But it’s not just Craig interpretation of the character that has caught our eye — Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, and Timothy Dalton were quite to-do as well.
The theory That Sean Connery’s convict “John Mason” – the only man to ever escape Alcatraz – is actually an older version of Connery-era 007. The theory goes that in the mid 1960s, famed British secret agent James Bond was caught spying in the United States, and locked up in infamous island prison Alcatraz (aka The Rock) on espionage charges. The plot sees the FBI enlist the help of Connery’s character (and his knowledge of Alcatraz), to help Nicolas Cage’s scientist thwart a group of ex-marines bent to destroying San Francisco with chemical weapons, using the prison as a base.
