The Name's Bond, James Bond.



Now this is something you don't see every day.  A group of James Bonds all in the same place.  I wonder what you call a group of Bonds? A gaggle? A set? A pride? What about a Hunk?  A Hunk of Bonds.  Umm. That'll do me, unless you can think of something better?

From left to right we have Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan.   Did you know that Roger Moore made 7 Bond films?  Neither did I until I read the back of the thimble.  I was also a bit surprised to see that Sean Connery's thimble says he only made 6.  That's odd I thought, so I did a google search and sure enough, Sean made 6 official Bond films and 1 that wasn't official.  It was called "Never Say Never Again" and was made in 1983 - but not by the people that own the Bond franchise. So it doesn't count.  It's also the only Bond film (or rather non-Bond)  that I have never watched.  Cool.  A bit of trivia which might come in handy if I'm ever on Who Wants to be a Millionaire.   

This is one of the reasons I love thimbles.  They are practical, decorative and educational.      

Of course, if Sean Connery can't claim 7 films due to a technicality, I can't really call this a Hunk of Bonds.  It's not complete. It's missing Daniel Craig.  So, to get a Hunk, I'll need Daniel.
