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

ABOVE: If you can’t tell by the title, I’m going all kinds of Christmas crazy with today’s Nerdy Bits. First up, if you’re like me and have yet to send out your holiday cards then you might want to consider this Game of Thrones inspired cards by CFergoDesigns. These cards are completely customizable, so you can have them say whatever they want – though I think the above is rather clever. [Home Geekonomics

Dalek Christmas trees are rather common but I think this one is the best I’ve seen – especially because it’s wearing a bowtie! Even Dalek’s think bowties are cool! [Nerd Approved]

Now these are carolers you definitely wouldn’t want outside of your house… or maybe you would if you’re into chaos and mayhem. These Gremlin cookies, made by Not Your Mommas Cookie, are the perfect nerdy addition to your holiday baking. [Between the Pages]


Every epic moment of 2013 is captured in this cartoon by Entertainment Earth. Everything we loved or loved to hate about this year is all here. [Topless Robot]

On Monday, Sarcastic Rover tweeted a series of tweets about Martian Santa. Some of the tweets are silly, some are nerdy and some are really sweet. There’s a Storify of them here.


It’s not too late to terrify all of your relatives this holiday season! Make them this Cthulhu inspired Christmas dinner! All you need is crab legs, a chicken, some octopus and bacon – why bacon? WHY NOT BACON!? It helps make the fear tasty! [Geekologie]

You may have noticed that nerds celebrate the holidays a bit differently than most people (see Cthulhu meal above) and Pablo Stanley perfectly sums up what makes all of so weird… uh, I mean awesome, in his ‘How Geeks Celebrate Xmas‘ comic. [Neatorama]

The Unipiper presents: Darth Vader Santa Claus Playing Flaming Bagpipes! That title is ridiculous enough, this doesn’t need additional witty commentary. [GlobalGeekNews]

Too bad this Godzilla vs Monsters by CineFlix isn’t a real game because i’d like the chance to be a part of a Godzilla vs Stay Puft Marshmallow Man fight. [Geekosystem]

Ahhhhh!!!! I have 7 nieces, 5 of whom are teenagers – this is my family at Christmas… actually, this is my family ALL THE TIME. [Geeks Are Sexy]
