For some reason, the queen kept referring to him as "Sir Simon Templar"

They had to keep correcting her.

She's quite old...and frumpy.

Was his toupee also knighted?

If not, I hope at least it was fed some kibbles in a ruby-encrusted bowl.

I thought that old hag kicked the bucket a few months ago?

Who - Sir Roger or the Queen?
2003-06-16 12:17:34 PM  
Roger More, wasn't that an Aussie campaign to increase their population?
2003-06-16 12:24:05 PM  
Wouldn't it be weird if 700 years ago a bunch of aliens were watching earth and they saw that the knights were the people who faught and stuff. So, when they came down to take over, they started by killing all the meatheads that stupid tart has knighted? Eh.

2003-06-16 12:54:23 PM  
I read that as Michael Moore, the first time. I was about to go apeshiat.

/moving on
2003-06-16 01:06:30 PM  
Does anyone on here get the double entendre of his name, like Pussy Galore? In England, Roger means bonking, moore means, well, never mind.
2003-06-16 02:26:59 PM  
Sean Connery is the real 007.
2003-06-16 03:29:15 PM  
Next up Timothy Dalton.

Wasn't David Beckham made an OBE at this ceremony as well? Right now, he is a bigger celeb than all the rest combined, and he wasn't even mentioned.

The Queen Mother died somewhat recently at the ripe age of 342 or something, but the Queen is still alive and kicking.
2003-06-16 05:14:44 PM  
heh title made me laugh... that is all
2003-06-16 05:15:28 PM  
I wonder if he had to fark the Queen first...
2003-06-16 05:16:31 PM  
Don't forget that David Gilmour was in there as well, getting a CBE (Commander of the British Empire). That should be a nice compliment to his "Guitar God" status.
2003-06-16 05:18:03 PM  
The Saint, does anyone remember that show?
2003-06-16 05:18:15 PM  
Good headline.
2003-06-16 05:19:05 PM  
Sir Not-Quite-As-Good-As-Connery?
2003-06-16 05:20:06 PM  
Sir Roger can go blow a goat. Or Die Another Day. Or something.

The ceremony was almost prevented when a man with metal teeth jumped after Roger Moore.

Whatwherewhy - I used to watch The Saint all the time.
2003-06-16 05:23:51 PM  
I almost choked on my crackers when I first read this. I thought it said:

"Michael Moore knighted by Queen of England (Elizabeth, not Elton)"

I think I need to go gargle now....
2003-06-16 05:26:07 PM  
I submitted this with a far inferior headline.
2003-06-16 05:26:35 PM  
The most recent Bond film was the best in a long time. I liked all the tributes to older Bond films.
I was disappointed with the CGI though. The surfing from the edge of the glacier looked like Southpark animation.

When I was a kid, Moore was the only real James Bond as far as I was concerned. Sean Connery was great, but I think he played Bond a little too seriously. I kinda like Brosnan.

Anyway, good for Moore.
2003-06-16 05:26:36 PM  
Great headline!
I met the Jaws 16-17 yrs ago. Dude was a freakin' giant!
Nice giant, nice giant..
2003-06-16 05:27:06 PM  
I don't like the Queen. She costs us, Canadians, too much damn money. And people around here think she's the greatest, but in reality, she's just an asshat.
2003-06-16 05:27:26 PM  
I wonder if he showed his famous "One Emotion" during the ceremony?

*waits to see who recognizes it*
2003-06-16 05:28:34 PM  
STUPID tag would apply.

Made me laugh out loud! Here's a cookie :)

Though it would be really weird if it came true. Sad but hilarious.
2003-06-16 05:33:03 PM  
Ok, I shouldn't have even bothered. How many people would have listened to the third (interview) CD of Clash on Broadway and remembered that the song "One Emotion" was inspired by them watching Moore do James Bond. Oh well.
2003-06-16 05:37:34 PM  
As long as Elton John never gets to play Bond...

Bond walks into a gay-bar...

"Yes, I'd like an Appletini, shaken not stirred."...

Bond's new car would be a Saturn with a rainbow sticker on the back- "Q" would stand for "Queer"- and Dennis Rodman would probably be called in as the next Bond-girl...
2003-06-16 05:38:50 PM  
Wycco after seeing him pretty much ruin the movie adaptation of Tommy I just have to say...that deaf, dumb, and blind kid sure can't act at all.
2003-06-16 05:41:14 PM  
Sidi - are we talking the eyebrow here??
2003-06-16 05:42:07 PM  
gustav graves parachuted into london so he could also be knighted
2003-06-16 05:42:23 PM  
Best James Bond ever? George Lazenby, hands down.
2003-06-16 05:43:57 PM  
I hope you have a pleasant "knight" Mr Bond. It will be your last. Muahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

Doesn't anyone think ol' Roger Moore is a bit light in the loafers? Or is that just me?

/not that there's anything wrong with that

"I can't believe I lost to that guy"
2003-06-16 05:45:28 PM  

That Seinfeld episode is on RIGHT NOW!
2003-06-16 05:47:46 PM  
He's not gay, he's British.

There is a bit of a difference. One wants to have sex with men, the other doesn't want to have sex at all.

/jealous that so many women love British accents

In other news, Timothy Dalton was working as a valet parking attendant at the reception. Kept muttering to himself, "I had a few optional extras installed".
2003-06-16 05:48:44 PM  
andonbray - I use to love that show. I haven't seen it in a really long time.
2003-06-16 05:51:29 PM  
Thanks for the Walken pic, Haplo. You KNOW Moore wasn't going to get an award for "View To A Kill", or *shudder* "Live And Let Die"
2003-06-16 05:52:42 PM  
I dunno how nance he was, but you couldn't believe this guy was seriously trying to punch someone. He was just... "Owwww, YOU!! I'm gonna slap you SOOO Hard! Nasty lil badguy..."

The only guy who really looked like he wanted to pummel people when he hit 'em was Dalton, followed by Connery. Followed by George Lasenby. Followed by David Niven.

Followed by Woody Allen.

Followed by Moore.
2003-06-16 05:59:50 PM  
Damn Headline... I almost snorted my Coffee!
2003-06-16 06:01:26 PM  
Seems they've lowered the bar a little for knighthood. Now as long as you haven't been caught with kiddie porn you're in (sorry Mr. Townsend).
2003-06-16 06:02:03 PM  
Do you ever wish that he and Shatner would have made a movie together that involved a fight scene just to see how bad a fight scene could really be? Moore's Bond versus Shatner's Kirk, to the death. Comedy gold, I tell you.

The thread just wouldn't be complete without this.
2003-06-16 06:04:14 PM  
Sidi, it's not just women. An old bf of mine used to harangue me constantly to do a British accent.

Though Pierce Brosnan...yum.
