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.

ABOVE: To celebrate the impending day of obligatory romantic gestures known as Valentine’s Day, Geek Sugar has a list of nerdy gifts inspired by Star Wars. These little Han and Leia wooden dolls are the cutest of the bunch.


Redditor Kjkemme recreated the entire line of Call of Duty’s Perk-A-Cola. The list of ingredients is the best thing ever. Who wouldn’t want to drink badassery mixed with vodka and zombie appendages?  Check out Geekologie  for more images.



This is a super adorbs pixelated Supernatural cross-stitch pattern is just one of many nerdy patterns by XStitchMyHeart. If I were to make a Supernatural cross-stitch, I’d give Bobby a flask and Sam a hair cut. [The Mary Sue]


If only Firefly Owner Monthly was a real thing! [Blastr]


According to ThinkGeek, BPAL’s Cthulhu in Love contains spices, kelp, sea salt, mystery, and chocolates. Nothing says love like Lovecraft and tentacles!



This 3-D Winterfell is way cooler, but not necessarily cuter, than the dolls Howard printed in last week’s Big Bang Theory. Hop on over to Geekologie for more images of this model of Winterfell made from a 3-D printer!


What if Disney bought Hasbro and Mattel? We might end up with Toy War! It’s an epic mashup of Toy Story, G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe and more! [UnderScoopFire]


Megan Jean Morris of Painted Soul Tattoos did a stellar job with this Venom tattoo, it’s so badass you almost forget about the man-boobs. [Obvious Winner]


Geek Tyrant has a Best of Rogue Cosplay Collection, including the absolutely gorgeous Ruskicho you see above.


The couple that games together stays together. For these Mass Effect earrings and other nerd love baubles check out Girl Gone Geek’s list of Valentine gamer jewelry.

We’ve posted 331Erock‘s nerdy tunes before and this metal version of the Jurassic Park theme might be the best one yet.

Okay, when I review the Walking Dead next Sunday, I’m going to pretend that I’m watching an 80s sitcom because this is too fantastic…. and maybe that will make all of the horrible death and maiming of beloved characters a little easier to deal with.

Pete and Pete reunite on Funny or Die.

And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone.)
