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: First official Dancing Groot toy! Woo hoo, right? Meh, your excitement might wane when you realize it’s just a bobble head. Well, bobble hands sort of dance so I guess that counts.  [TheMarySue]


If you seen Rebecca (it’s a Manga thing), you would know that this cosplay is 10/10. Yes Virginia, those are not her real boobs, she made them out of pillow foam and Glue. [9gag]


A limited run of 3,000 individually numbered Smaug figures will be made available to those who preorder at, and given that he’ll come with a mystery 1.5″ bonus figure. With a 2ft wingspan that thing is going to take up a ton of shelf space. [ToplessRobot]

Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet? Want to be as cool as Peter Quill? Here’s the drink for you! Put on your Awesome Mix Vol. 1 and enjoy. [Geek&Sundry]

Two fish playing Street Fighter is the equivalent of underwater button smashing. I’d like to see Robert The Bruce take on a pro player. I would think it would be akin to an experienced player losing to their girlfriend who picks up game for first time.   [Geekologie]

Who’s (Emotionally) stronger Superman or Goku. The best part of this video? Fanboys on both sides will still argue about the results. [Dorkly]

The Intro to the 1990s Television Show ‘Twin Peaks’ Reimagined as an 8-Bit Animated Video Game [LaughingSquid]

Talk Dead to Me (Jason Derulo Walking Dead Music Video Parody). This is what happens when there is too long a break in between seasons.  [WalkerStalkers]
