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.

Waaaay better than your average potted plant. And all you need to make one is, “a playground ball, a plastic bowl, some felt and dowel. Oh, and some Atomic Fireball candy, if you want to upgrade your piranha plants to Super Mario Bros. 3‘s Venus Fire Traps.” Genius! (TDW: Geek)


Monopoly, Fallout style. Sadly, this isn’t a reality…yet. This is from DeviantArtist PinkAxolotl, but I think we should be writing to Bethesda and Hasbro and be like, “Bitches, give us a Fallout version of Monopoly. Bitches.” (TDW: Geek)

Maybe he should try meeting up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Trollface. Nah, that guys a dick. (Nerd Approved)


It’s a fool proof plan. One we’ve seen executed over and over and over again. (Game Freaks)


I’m guessing Nintendo could sell these today and plenty of people would still buy them. Sure, the 64 is way out of date, but it’s a classic. Add in a special modded case, and you’ve got a collector’s item. (TDW: Geek)


It’s always Loki. The source of all Norse frustration. (The Mary Sue)


Awe, yeah you are. (Fashionably Geek)


Ooooh. So it’s the shirt that kills the man, not his ineptitude as a Starfleet officer. (Fashionably Geek)

The Interwebz is a great place for artists to share their nerdy work, even though the majority of the time it’s a bunch of fuckin’ weird shit. There are a ton of awesome things to behold every day but we’re fuckin’ lazy bastards, so we just put it all together once a week to keep your mojos happy. Because I wasn’t able to get the stock pile up last week, we’ll be having a double feature this week showcasing only the best of the best from the past two weeks! Buckle down, guys, and have your socks at the ready.

We’ll start off this week with some work by Marco D’Alfonso of the Iron Giant being fuckin’ hungry and deciding to nom himself some Optimus Prime.



Playing violent video games have created many sociopaths, or at least that’s what Hillary Clinton would have you believe.. Bitch. Anyway, such video games are a great outlet for pent up anger and frustration. Curb stomping a locust or ripping someone limb from limb in Prototype, take your pick because I guarantee it will lessen your bad mood. This is a top 9 list and that’s it. “Why not 10?” Because I’m fucking working my ass off. Why not 8?! I’m sorry, I get emotional..  This list will, hopefully, open your eyes to some of the greatest brutal weapons in video games and maybe even turn you on… What? Don’t be gay.. *Rubs ice cube on nipple* Well, enjoy. You sadistic nerdy bastards! (more…)
