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: This Life-Size R2-D2 cake is the cake you’re looking for. Only Obi-Wan Kenobi can help her stop eating that entire R2 cake. Cakes are meant to be eaten, it’s their lot in life.  [CakesCove]


Attack on Titan ball gown. There is a rude joke here, but it’s low hanging fruit.  Instead, I’ll just say this is clever as it is gruesome. This is the first “Eren’s Mom” cosplay we’ve ever seen. And hopefully not the last. [FashionablyGeek]


Le Sexy Velma cosplay once again proving that underneath the glasses and clothing is a sexy goddess. We’ll all be in our bunks. [CBM]

If you didn’t love them before, this charming video will help change that. Watch James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender do impersonations of their older X-Men counterparts, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. [Cinemablend]

Mecedes isn’t the first car I would imagine Mario driving, but this new ad might move it up the list a few spots. That Mario makeup and costume at the end make it all worth it. [ToplessRobot]

Now, we bring you the video of what Watch Dogs would be if the title was taken a little too literally.  [Dorkly]

This makes me want to binge watch the series this weekend. Hannibal would make a great cooking competition show. “What kind of Tenderloin is that?” “Why, it’s Gordon Ramsey’s tenderloin.” [ThatsNerdalicious]

One-man band performs the Star Wars theme on his wonderful musical contraption. Is it just me, or does this need more Uni-cycle? It’s a good thing he has his mailbox with him, he wouldn’t want to miss that letter from Hollywood.   [Geekologie]
