The whole thing is an interesting read what with the whole fantasy about Chuckie Baby doubling as a CIA assassin.
He has a sardonic negativity that melds and fuses to a certain crazed whimsy that makes me wish he would not only be my friend..that he would write another book. It just had to be taken for the wonderful mystery it was.
Even though now we can pretty much rule out the whole hit-man thing (a later memoir didn't really bring it up), this book still stands as a wildly amusing perfectly metaphorical memoir where Barris took his persecution frustration from the people who said he was responsible for the dumbing down of our wonderful nation via network television and confessed to things they'd really be disgusted at - actually killing some of the American and International public, not just dumbing them down.
And if nothing else, he did bring The Popsicle Twins to prime-time TV.
A week ago, I happene to catch a little-known movie called "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" -- George Clooney's directoral debut.
What most people don't know is that Barris allegedly spent close to two decades as a decorated covert assassin for the CIA. Who's to say if the super tall tales Barris lays down in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind are real? He knew what the people wanted and he gave it to them. But one wonders if while sitting around bored at his ABC Studios security guard gig cooking up ideas that would eventually turn into hit television shows like The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game and the Gong Show, perhaps Barris was also cooking up an alter ego, a James Bond daydream persona that could lift him out of his humdrum existence.
