Call a Bondulance is a catchphrase often used as a reaction to incoherent posts or posts containing severe misspellings which humorously implies that the person who wrote the post is having a stroke. The catchphrase originated as a punchline of a viral tweet made in December 2014.


On December 2nd, 2014, Twitter[1] user @thepunningman tweeted a joke about James Bond having a stroke and failing to present himself with his iconic catchphrase "My name is Bond, James Bond." After mixing up the words twice, Bond realizes that he is having a stroke and asks to "call a Bondulence," meaning ambulance. The tweet received over 15,800 retweets and 27,600 likes in five years and has been reposted multiple times on Facebook, Instagram, Reddit and other online platforms multiple times in the following years.[2][3]

- The bond's Name. James Name.
- Pleased to… what?
- Bond Name's the james.
- Are you alright?
- Bames Nond's having a stronk, call a Bondulance.


On July 22nd, 2015, Twitter[4] user @twoodle_05 posted a comic based on the joke, with the tweet receiving 140 retweets and 460 likes in five years (shown below).

While the exact first instance of use of the catchphrase "call a bondulance" for the purpose of mocking misspellings and incoherent posts is unknown, such comments saw a significant increase in use in 2019. For example, a February 1st, 2019, reply to Harry Styles' post by Twitter[5] user @bruhndaa received over 1,300 likes (shown below, left). A July 6th, 2019, reply to Nathan Sharp's tweet by Twitter[6] user @OneTrueLoser received over 180 likes (shown below, right).

In addition to usage in replies, the catchphrase has often been used as a titled for jokes and memes about strokes on Reddit[7] and Imgur.[8]
