Fiction's Finest Nerds #44, Douche-Bag Edition: Eddie Haskell

I don't know if you watched Leave it to Beaver when you were a kid, but it was perhaps my first introduction to the elusive nerd-douche. Eddie Haskell was Wally Cleaver's friend. A guy who was sure he was the coolest guy around. He had all the parents fooled, or so he thought. In fact, he was far less cool than he let on.

I hated Eddie as a kid. He was two-faced and would always screw Wally over if he could. The way he slimed up to parents frankly made me a little sick to my stomach, and may be the main reason I have trouble giving my "superiors" the undue credit they expect.
