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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

YouTuber Erin Stevenson took the audio of The Hobbit trailer, added the visuals of Adventure Time, and what we get is this rad re-imagining of Bilbo’s adventures through Finn the Human. Honestly, I’m a little surprised we haven’t seen anything like this from Adventure Time, officially.[The Mary Sue]
