    haha Spotted this on ebay just now:

    Product Description:

    Exciting spy action-adventure spanning four continents. Jaimes Bond, the Latino cousin of a famous British spy, with his grumbling side-kick, sets off for a lusty spy adventure to save the world form evil criminals. They meet beautiful, sexy women; They narrowly escape death; They rescue damsels in distress; They have erotic adventures; They battle killer clowns and killer animals; They try to save the world, but they can barely manage to save their own miserable skins [maybe because they smoke too much weed; Maybe because they drink too much booze; Maybe because they are hopeless playboys] - - - Some say it's a 'spy spoof'. Some say this international 'best seller' is banned in Bosnia, censored in seven other countries. CAUTION: This lusty adventure tale is not recommended for readers under eighteen years of age, nor for prudes.

    Speaking of parodies, how could I forget "Israel Bond", agent Oy Oy Seven, by Sol Weinstein ?

    The "From/To + [country] + with love [or any other feeling]" titles have been done to death.

    I've met a lot of people who could swear that the original phrase was "From China with fury", and when I told them about FRWL, they said that Fleming borrowed it for his book.
    That's quite the opposite, infact. In italian, "From China with Fury" (Dalla Cina con Furore) is the title of a Jackie Chan movie, and the phrase rhymes with the italian translation of "From Russia with Love" (Dalla Russia con Amore)

    Found thnks to TBTropes :

    In Germany, TWINE is called "Die Welt ist nicht genug". Well, there's a movie called "Der Wald is nicht genug", where the Seven Dwarves go fight Rumpelstilskin :

    Time to revive this thread. I recently discovered that the German title for "OSS 117 : Cairo, Nest of Spies" was : "Der Spion der Sich Liebte" (The Spy Who Loved Himself). So true...

    And "Lost in Rio" is called "Er elbst is sich genug" (himself is enoughfor himself. But the joke with TWINE (Der Welt ist Nicht Genug) works better in German.

    During my trip, I went to Forbidden Planet in London, and found that there was a series of book by Simon R. Green called "The Secret History", featuring one Edwin Drood, AKA Shaman Bond, who fights things that go bump in the night. And here are the titles of the books in the series :

    The Man with the Golden Torc

    Daemons Are Forever

    The Spy Who Haunted Me

    From Hell with Love

    For Heaven's Eyes Only

    Live and Let Drood

    Casino Infernale

    Property of a Lady Faire

    From a Drood to a Kill

    Quantum of Solos

    Licence to Rill

    The Mara Never Dies

    And the next book in the series will be called : Dr. DOA (at least according to TVTropes).

    And I know what I said, but here's a link to "Special Agent Oso"'s episode titles :

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Special_Agent_Oso_episodes

    Because listing them all on this page would be very time-consuming, even by cut and paste.

    Apparently, reviewers of DAD joked that when the DVD came out, consumers should consider against it and "buy another day".

    I googled "From China with fury"....and I couldn't find anything. What's "FCWF" ? A movie before FRWL or?

    In fact, it's the italian title for "Fist of Fury / The Chinese Connection", Bruce Lee's second movie (although Jackie Chan, then a young stuntman, appeared in it). And as I said earlier, in Germany, it was called "Todesgrüsse aus Shanghai".

    Yesterday, I found out that there was a series about a female spy called Jane Bomb. And the first novels in this series are :

    fEl__QZ9g0wWQ40ZxpFHLRNe53-Y4j5nt7AZQ7uFgYemK7afaEaP_w-cover-full.jpg

    Given the "nom de plume" the author chose, one can guess that those books are parodies.

    Taking things further, of course there are the Jane Bond porn films floated over the years.

    1975 Jane Bond AKA: The Girl From A.U.N.T.I.E.
    1985 A License to Thrill
    1985 Jane Bond Meets Thunderballs
    1986 Secret Agent 0069, Jane Bond Meets Octopussy
    1987 Jane Bond Meets the Man with the Golden Rod
    1998 00Sex, es ist niemals zu spät! AKA: A Female James Bond in Action (German)
    1999 00Sex im Auge des Orkans AKA: 00Sex 2: Eye of the Hurricane

    https://permissiontokill.wordpress.com/tag/jane-bond/
    JANE BOND
    Jane Bond meets the Man with the Golden Rod
    Amber Lynn as Jane Bond
    Not to be confused with the Cantonese caper, masked crusader, crime films films from Hong Kong the Jane Bond films, put simply, are pornographic parodies of the James Bond series. There have been so many over the years, made in various countries over the world, that I would suggest that the are impossible to catalogue, but titles amongst the multitude include Jane Bond (1975) AKA: The Girl From AUNTIE which featured Joan Devlon as the titular Jane; A License to Thrill (1985) with Heather Wayne as Jane and characters such as Pussyfinger and Dr. Yes. Then there is Jane Bond Meets Thunderballs (1985) starring Stacey Donovan. Amber Lynn starred in two flicks as Secret Agent 0069, Jane Bond Meets Octopussy (1986) and Jane Bond Meets the Man with the Golden Rod (1987). From Germany there was 00Sex, es ist niemals zu spät! (1998) – AKA: A Female James Bond in Action and 00Sex im Auge des Orkans (1999) – AKA: 00Sex 2: Eye of the Hurricane which both featured Kelly Trump as Jane Bond.

    Moving on from Jane Bond, there is the similarly titled Jane Bomb (2004) from Sweden, which stars an actress called Linda Lust in the role of Jane Bomb, and features character names such as Ivana Blofeldt, Miss Moneypussy, Silverfinger, Agent 0069, and Blowjob. Enough said, really.

    There must be quite a few episode titles from The Avengers related to Bond, but for now, I found this one :

    From Venus with Love

    featuring cult horor actress Barbara Shelley and future Doctor Jon Pertwee.

    Get Smart loved episode titles that were puns on films, books or TV series. There weren't as many Bond ones as you might expect, but we do get Dr Yes, Bronzefinger, and Pussycats Galore. (There's also an episode where the villain is a Mr Royale who runs a casino. Points for subtlety.)

    "So YOU are...Bronzethumb!"
    "Bronzefinger! A thumb is also a finger!"

    By going to Wikipedia, I learned that Karin Dor (of YOLT fame) appeared on stage in 2008 in a play called Man Liebt Nur Dreimal (You Only Love Thrice). Funny, that.
