Female Body Inspector (Federal Bureau of Investigation or FBI nickname)

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is sometimes jokingly nicknamed “Female Body Inspector”—especially on caps and T-shirts. “Female Body Inspector” for “FBI” has been cited in print since at least 1967 and 1975.
The FBI has also been nicknamed “Fake Bureau of Investigation,” “Famous But Incompetent,” “Fascist Bastards Incorporated,” “Fascist Bureau of Investigation,” “Fat Bitches Incorporated,” “Favoritism Before Integrity,” “FBLie,” “Federal Bastards Incorporated,” “Federal Bullshit Investigations,” “Federal Bureau of Incompetency,” “Federal Bureau of Insurrectionists,” “Federal Bureau of Intimidation,” “Federal Bureau of Political Investigation,” “Fix Be In,” “Following Biden’s Instructions,” “Fucking Bastards Incorporated,” “Fucking Bitches Incorporated,” “Fucking Bunch of Idiots,” “Full Blown Idiots” and “Fumbling, Bumbling Idiots.”
Wikipedia: Federal Bureau of Investigation
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States, which simultaneously serves as the nation’s prime federal law enforcement agency. Operating under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI is concurrently a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community and reports to both the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence. A leading U.S. counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal investigative organization, the FBI has jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal crimes.
Uncyclopedia (Wikipedia parody)
The Female Body Inspectors (FBI) is an agency of the United States Department of Justice that serves as the largest sexual harassment enforcement agency in America. They are headquartered on the beaches of Southern California, and are also not an organization that you want to mess around with.

The next time you meet a member of the FBI, don’t take it for granted he’s an investigator.
That doesn’t mean, however, that he belongs to the Female Body Inspectors (though that’s what his friends jokingly call the organization).
Indeed, he probably is a member of Fat Boys Inc., the second men’s TOPS group to be formed in the United States.
