Very funny Angela:-)
I came across something similar recently, in a PUBLISHED book no less, about Pedro Almodovar, in Spanish.
Anyway, this author, expert on film, or at least, expert on Almodovar, and therefore with pretensions to cultural knowledge, confused Bloomsday with Bloomsbury.
When he was obviously referring to Virginia Woolf and the bluestockings, on 2 occasions he referred to the Bloomsday group...
Bloomsday is, in fact, June the 16th, James Joyce day in Ireland:-)

And we should not forget that "Ian" Fleming he shared the credit (and the Nobel Prize) with a BORIS Ernst Chain - of Russian parentage...
"From Russia with(out) bugs"
And, eventually, a lot of GOLD came to all those who had a FINGER in the pie...
(And we shouldn't forget Graham Greene's "Third Man"...)
I'm sure there must be something fishy about these moulds, you know...
