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. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Yes! It’s what I’ve always wanted! Cthulu Barbie! Want to try a hand at making your own “cosmic, insanity-inducing abomination” doll, then check out Introverted Wife. (io9)

And to think the fate of the galaxy rested on this guy. Dumbass. (NerdApproved)

I choose you, Pika – holy shit, how do you fit all that armor and swords and badassery inside a pokeball!?! (Kotaku)

So we’re up in arms over the Iron Patriot appearing in Iron Man 3. How about an Iron Lantern? (Fashionably Geek)

In the Game of Bootlegs you either try and make a recognizable cover or say fuck it, Ned Stark’s head’s been cut off, why not put it on Thor’s body. (io9)

And here’s my response. How cool would it be if the Asgardians were the Old Gods!? I wanna see that mashup. (Nerd Approved)


It’s Leeeeeeerrroooooooyyy Jenkins. In a heist film. Hmm, I think we can all guess how this is gonna go down. (TDW: Geek)

The Portal fan film by Synthetic Picturehaus is now complete and you can watch the whole thing here. It follows Rattman,”aka the guy who did all the paintings you find tucked behind the walls in the game.” Check it out and let us know what you think. (Kotaku)

This is The Muppets blooper reel, but actually, it’s more than a blooper reel, it’s proof that Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Walter, all of them are REAL.  Or the muppeteers never break character, but I think it’s easier to believe The Muppets are real. (Spinoff)
