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.

All this Hobbit talk has be thinking, what if it ended a different way? I mean, I know there are two more films, the last which will have a proper ending, but here’s HISHE’s spin on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

It’s the last Hobbit related bit, I swear, but did you know six dwarves crashed the video shoot for the Wellington based band, Claude Rains? Yup. In order of appearance there’s James Nesbitt, Graham McTavish, Adam Brown, Jed Brophy, Stephen Hunter, and Mark Hadlow. [The Mary Sue]
