A man must have his principles. For Eric, it was fighting for years to have Howard call him something other than "midget," because he believed the word to be derogatory and offensive. But when there's money to be had, often times a man's principles go out the window.
THE MIDGET IS BACK!
The little guy had a big announcement today: he wants to now be known as "Eric the Midget." Why? Because he plans on taking those who profit off the name to court, of course.
According to Eric, there are people making a good chunk of change by selling ETM merchandise, and now he wants his piece of the action. But in order to convince a judge he's entitled to the cash, Eric has to accept his name being Eric The Midget.
"If you win these lawsuits, you might pull in upwards of $300," Howard joked.
