Batman cake

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: Fancy by Cakes by Lauren created this absurdly detailed Batman cake. He’s scowling! I don’t know how someone eats something like this. It’s too awesome to eat… although, if it’s red velvet inside I might be forced to cut off his head. [Between the Pages


Cosplayer Vampy Bit Me’s take on White Phoenix is too stunning for words. White Phoenix cosplays aren’t something you see everyday, so this is pretty cool. [GeekxGirls]

the investor

Wait… wait… do any people like this exist? Dorkly has 5 other types of mobile gamers – which one are you?


Despite the fact that I’m up to level 440 in Candy Crush, Tetris is still my first love. I need this sandwich cutter in my life. It makes me want to cut all of my food into Tetris shapes. Then I can play Tetris with steak, burgers, ohhh and french fries can be the lines and…. and I’ll just stop now. [Dude I Want That]

WW ring

This is the ring every independent woman needs. Declare your supreme badassness with this gold and ruby Wonder Woman ring from Paul Michael Design.

Victorian TARDIS

You guys know that I can’t get enough of TARDIS cosplays and this Victorian inspired outfit is superb. I love the whimsical TARDIS fabric used in the center (it’s also on the bustle in the back). This one of a kind gown is available on Etsy.

The nerds at Geek & Sundry have brewed up the perfect drink for you to imbibe while you swoon over Cumberbatch on Sunday night.

Using a Famicom cartridge case, Basami Sentaku created a working harmonica that plays 8-bit sounds, thanks to an NES sound chip inside the device. [Technabob]

Some of you have probably seen this X-Files season 1 gag reel, but I never had, so when I found it on Mental Floss it was like unearthing buried treasure – hilariously nerdy buried treasure.

Dear god the Friends’ theme song is still awful, even when thrown on top of this cute Day of the Doctor vid. [BBCAmerica]
