Maggie plans to split her prize with Cappy; Nerd Herd fans share their thoughts

Eric “Cappy” Littmann may have been eliminated early in Big Brother 6, but he’s going to still get some of the prize money. That’s because winner Maggie says she’s “sharing” her prize with Eric.

Because sharing is apparently against the rules, Maggie told the Calgary Sun that she’s not supposed to talk about it, and then said it anyway. “We’re not allowed to talk about that (splitting the money), but I am so sharing,” she said. Why does Cappy deserve money? Maggie says, “I didn’t sign up for this — it was all Eric. I just got a call at work one day.”

Finally, before Big Brother 6 completely fades out of our consciousness (isn’t it amazing how easy it is to stop caring and forget about the series?), I know there are some real fans of the Friendship who’ve felt beaten down by all the Nerd Herd-haters.

While I’m sure there are at least three Friendship fans who are intelligent and have good reasons for supporting, most of the ones who’ve e.mailed me are functionally illiterate, racist, stupid, or all three.

Here are excerpts from three longer, incomprehensible rants written by people who were somehow convinced that I care what they think. By the way, I simply copied from their e.mail messages and pasted below for your enjoyment, using [...] to mark cuts; I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

I can not believe you and America hold bimbo Janelle and ugly Kaysar (or as I like to call him Sadaam), up with such high regard. [...] I hope after seeing the way they acted that Janelle, Kaysar, Howie and some of the others are ashamed of their self and I thank God I’m not related to any of them because I would be embarrassed to call them family or even friends.

IT WAS GREAT THE WAY BIG BROTHER TURNED OUT. THE FRIENDSHIP WERE THE UNDERDOGS AS THE “BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE” TRIED TO TAKE THEM OUT AND IT DID NOT WORK. CHAULK UP ONE FOR THE UNDERDOGS !!!!!!!!!

I watch all the espidoes and I though the friendship alliance played a better games. All the other alliance did was begrade the other players. [...] I strongly believe that the American pools was fix my Big Brother because there is no way that Americans are that dump.
