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.

Possibly the Worst eBay Listing of All Time.
This Firestorm action figure from 1985 is going for almost $800, why? Well, it’s very authentic what with all the char marks — that’s right, someone lit this sucker on fire and now it’s graded out at a AFA 20, which is officially “Poor”. By the way, those are genuine 1980’s flames, not contemporary fire, so don’t you dare try lighting your old toys on fire in an effort to make a quick buck.
The often not seen home videos of The Muppet’s teen years. The fad of recording dumb shit and posting it on YouTube, yeah, they started that. [College Humor]
