Worm is Bond

Statistical analysis has shown that most visitors to The Dizzies come seeking one thing and one thing only: Ouroboros news!

Dizzyhead Bill writes:

In Ian Fleming's Live and Let Die, James Bond's nemesis ("Mr. Big"!) operates through a business called "Ourobouros Worm and Bait Shippers, Inc."

Bond "found the poison fish which were one of his objectives. When he had read about them in the files of the Police Headquarters in New York, he had made a mental note that he would like to know more about this sideline of the peculiar business of Ourobouros Inc."

This is a side point, but man, those are some bad sentences! They read like they were translated poorly, and very literally, from some other language. I hope Ian Fleming was a better spy than he was a prose stylist!

But he knew the ourobouros--hat's a real point in his favor!
