007 versus 008

MI6 has grown careless, and have aroused suspicion that could ultimately expose a couple of their field agents.  My theory is that two St. John’s College residents (one former, one current) are in fact spies.  The first spy to live at SJC was Tom Smith.  Recently, another spy has moved into the college, Tom Morley, who I believe is Tom Smith’s replacement.  Here is why I am suspicious:  Both agents 007 (left) and his replacement, agent 008 (right) are named Tom.  Besides having the same name, and the fact that they seem to attract the same woman, there are some other amazing similarities in their profiles.  Both are athletic (they both run, cycle, hike, etc.).  Both like fast cars (007 likes the Aston Marton DB 9, 008 likes the TVR).  Both like the Back to the Future movies.  A lot.  Both talk funny.  They have a similar sense of humour.  Both claim that their favourite meal is their mommy’s roast.  Is it a coincidence that 008 moved into room 2051, which is right next door to 007’s old room?  The coincidences are a constant source of amusement for those that knew 007.  I think MI6 got lazy and used the same character for both agents.  I wonder who would win in a fight…

There is one other fact that is suspicious: On the same day that 007 arrived, 008 left for the UK under mysterious circumstances.  It is possible (although I realize that it seems farfetched) that 007 and 008 are in fact the same person.

Edit:  Since I wrote this post I have discovered two more similarities in their profiles: 1) both are big fans of Steve McQueen and Clint Eastwood; and 2) both hate Boddingtons beer.
