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: Battle Cat and Skeletor costume hoodies. From the product description: “Be aware that this Battle Cat hoodie is so lifelike He-Man may mistakenly jump on your back if he sees you walking past”. Dunno if that’s a design flaw or feature.

Slender Man is a busy guy. Walking around forests, standing, moving his head crazy like, standing, looking all crazy up in those woods.  Find out what he does to blow off steam when he’s not scaring your pants off. [Dorkly]
