Be Somebody . . . Or Be Somebody's Fool, The Secret Service, 1985. PB, 48pp. London: Methuen.
Smarting from a series of vicious attacks on their reputation by A-Team star Mr T, the US Secret Service struck back with this volume, clearly inspired by T's little-known work of the same title. The Secret Service defend their 'bad ass' image with a series of poems, songs and observations, as well as sarcastic caricatures like "Mr T Is A Nancy" and "Don't Believe Him, He's A Darkie". A notable historical curiosity, if only for the first published photos of FBI agents in full drag. Expect to retail for about $0.50; some warehouse stock apparently still exists.
