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: Bummed that you don’t live in the Shire? Build your own hobbit hole just like Ashley Yeates of Torii Gardens! Check out Geek x Girls to see how the project unfolded. 

tardis necklace

Spin across time and space with the Spin Doctor necklace from Paul Michael Designs. Made out of white diamonds and sapphires, this Doctor Who inspired pendant is yet another stunning piece from everyone’s favorite nerdy jeweler.

Thanks to this adorable neck pillow I can cuddle up with Jake when I spend my Saturday nights marathoning Adventure Time….. uh, not that I do that on Saturday nights because I’m very busy and important and have a rocking social life…. Twitter counts as a social life, right? [Technabob]

A Venom birthday cake – because birthdays should be terrifying!  [Between the Pages]

No comment. [This is why I’m broke]


So sad! Why didn’t anyone think of the children before they blew up the Death Star? [Fashionably Geek]


There were a lot of great April Fools’ Day pranks yesterday, but Things from Another World’s ‘Own Your Own Direwolf’ prank was by far the cutest.

I really adore nerdy burlesque…. but this…. this is just WRONG. [Topless Robot]


Wow! These papercraft shadowboxes by Paper Pony are captivating! Check out the Etsy store to purchase your own and see more images at Fashionably Geek.

(Beware, there’s a lot of scrolling coming up – but damn, it’s worth it.)


This is too awesome. I can’t handle it. I want my own lawn dinosaur! Maybe Sarcasticonomist will give me his? [Geek x Girls]

Here’s what I don’t understand about ThinkGeek’s April Fools’ pranks: they always come up with things that hundreds of people would actually buy. The Rosetta Stone Klingon Edition could be a real thing! Why isn’t it? Why can’t I give anyone my money?

If anyone tries to tell you that chemistry isn’t cool just tell them a few of these jokes. They’ll still think chemistry is uncool, but at least you’ll be amused. [Geeks Are Sexy]
