Nerdy Bits: Hodor’s Secret, Pinkie Pie – ‘Skyrim’ A**-Kicker, Doctor Whooves, Super-Inflatable-Man and MOAR!
Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks.

ABOVE: I’ve never been one to look at an Ewok and think, “Yes, this needs to look sexier.” Then again, I don’t understand the trend of Halloween costumes that take any character or profession and sexify them, either. This Ewok costume is pretty adorable and is more cute than slutty, but that Jawa, he’s freakin’ me out. (Fashionably Geek)
Never trust someone, if all they can utter is a single word. They’re up to something and they’re just playing dumb to lure you into a sense of false security. (Dorkly)
Want to watch Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic eviscerate any resident of Skyrim who gets in her way? Of course you do. Watch as Pinkie Pie kicks so much ass all while singing and reminding everyone to smile. (Nerdist)
MLP fandom, it’s invading everything, even Doctor Who. Beginning with background pony who fans though bore a resemblance to David Tennant, Doctor Whooves is a time traveling pony with an hourglass cutie mark on his rump. Now Doctor Whooves has his own show courtesy of Youtuber, ocarinaplaya. Check out the short, 6-min episode, I promise, non-Bronies, it’s not quite as dumb as it sounds. (The Mary Sue)
Edertron Onerski and Kid NES dressed as the merry pranksters of the Mushroom Kingdom, Wario and Waluigi for their latest mural. Check out this awesome time-lapsed video of them getting their paint on. (Fashionably Geek)
Taking a step away from the 8-bit and into the world of the Nintendo 64, this video is of the world’s fastest speed run through Ocarina of Time. It’s all due to a menu glitch that allows the player to skip a huge chunk of the game, though, he does impressively defeat Ganon without becoming an adult Link. And, he’s actually got an even faster speedrun, at 22:43, now the new world record. (TDW: Geek)
2001: A Space Odyssey retold with LEGOS makes maybe more sense than the original film. At least it’s significantly shorter, and if you watch you’ll be just as confused as audiences of Stanley Kubrick’s flick. (Geek Tyrant)
Umm…okay. And this video goes on for five minutes? Really? All right, that’s, uh, cool. (TDW: Geek)
