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: The cast of Firefly got together at Dallas ComicCon and staged this rather unceremonious group photo. They’re obviously having a little fun with themselves, but I imagine they often feel as they look when they get rolled to conventions and have to respond to awkward fan inquiries. Seriously, almost every Q&A I’ve been to, the most unprepared, unoriginal and confusing questions get asked. [NerdApproved


These Star Wars themed macaroons from Semi-Sweet Designs are the delicious treat you’re looking for. Screw your diet and let the Wookiee win.  [GAS]


Foogos is a freelance graphic artist, who happens to like making stuff out of food. Particularly pop culture logos, hence the name Foogos. I tried making a GOT pizza Foogo once, but it didn’t come out right. Not only was it burnt, but looked more like a Piscasso painting on acid. I salvaged it, by rolling the pizza up, stuck it on a stick and presented it as Ned Starks head on a spike. [Foogos]

If Game of Thrones had a Walking Dead style opening. Audio quality be damned, this was a damn good creative work. Though, what would GoT be without it’s 5 minute opening? [Dorkly]

Watch Dogs parkour in real life. What’s great about it is, this time it’s not parkour for parkour, this is well injected in the film and a thrilling chase. Gives you a good idea of how a Watch Dogs movie might play out. Now, I don’t do parkour, but I’m pretty sure I move with the same style and grace when someone tries to take my smart phone away.  [Devinsupertramp]

This is what Toy Story would look like as a horror movie! Tell me again why I thought it was a good idea to watch this at night? [EliteDaily]

Pokémon with Mortal Kombat fatalities. I’m relatively certain this is how PETA views the actual Pokémon games. [Dorkly]

In advance of X-Men: Days of Future Past opening this weekend, Screen Junkies has put together an Honest Trailer of the The X-Men Trilogy. They rip apart the series (particularly the 3rd one, and right so) the only way they can, with snarks and barks. [ScreenJunkies]
