You love nerdbastards and nerdbastards loves you right back *awkward nerd hug*. There is no way to show just how much we adore you, but from time to time we get a bit of cool swag in which we can give away as little tokens of appreciation
ThinkGeek.com (Love them. That’s an admission and request) recently and maybe foolishly (They fed the bear. We’re just gonna keep coming back for more) sent us some good stuff to whore out amongst the bastard masses.
Up this week, Star Wars Dark Side Roast Coffee. A Sith approved blend of African and Indonesian beans that is a must have for any Dark Lord to wake up to. Anyone planning the destruction of a planet, building a planetary Deathstar, or killing younglings shouldn’t start their day with out it. *Note: Killing younglings was a prequel reference. Don’t get any any ideas. We all know how Anakin ended up.
We got 3 bags to give out to 3 different winners (1 12oz bag each).
What exactly do I need to do to win?
There are two things you need to do to win. 1. You need to follow nerdbastards on either Twitter (@nerdbastards) or Facebook. 2. You need to tweet or make a wall update (on the NB facebook fan page- Dark Side Giveaway Post) ) saying “The best part of waking up is Vader in Your Cup“. Simple, right?
Contest is applicable to fans who already follow us on Facebook/Twitter (you just need to tweet or make a wall update of the required fore mentioned phrase). Multiple tweets or wall updates are allowed (no limit, but don’t flood the feeds. Play nice.). 3 lucky winners will be randomly chosen (so don’t go trying to bribe us with money or boobs. They are certainly welcomed, they just won’t increase your chances). on Monday 3/21/11. The bags will be mailed out (free of charge via standard delivery) within 1-2 weeks.
Got it? Now, what are you waiting for? Start spreading the Nerdbastards/ThinkGeek gospel. DO IT NOW!
If you do not win but still wish to partake in the “Impressive” bold roast then you can buy a bag on thinkgeek.com for $9.99
