James Bond

My name is Bond, James Bond.

After escaping numerous villains, I was found in a plum tree, daring to swing from branch to branch. Unfortunately, I no longer have any fantastic cars or great gadgets to share, like my jet pack or my signature Aston Martin DB5, but I am a handsome gentleman dressed to kill in my very best tuxedo. I am now looking for a new home with a loving family. Never say never again, you know that I am for your eyes only.
