Nerdy Bits, The Sh*t You Skipped: Patton Oswalt Pranks ‘King of Queens’, Mario Responds to PETA, Adorable Little Girl Plays ‘Skyrim’ and MOAR!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch what might be one of the single, greatest sitcom pranks of our generation. Patton Oswalt, comedian, writer and all around nerd tweeted yesterday, “Forgot I did this. I stayed absolutely motionless in the opening scene from a King Of Queens episode. EERIE.” And that’s exactly what hilariously happens. (Nerdist)
This Funcoland (Eventually merging into Gamestop) training video will make you appreciate your work place all the more. You don’t have some creepy, maniacal dude in a top hat as your supervisor. Or, maybe you do, I don’t know what kind of insane, sadistic circus you work at. (TDW: Geek)
I so wanted this cosplay to be real, but it’s only an incredibly awesome photo manipulation. Which is still pretty cool, but I wanted to believe someone could create a Batgirl costume this kick ass. (Fashionably Geek)
An equally as awesome and infinitely more real costume, Stormtrooper Scotsman. Coming to a Ren Faire near you. (Fashionably Geek)
Mario responds to PETA’s allegations he unjustly harms Tanooki racoons in order to get his Tanooki suit. Well, that’s just not true. Mario is nothing but a friend to the animals of the Mushroom Kingdom. (Dorkly)
When you need to rock out, Skyrim style. TTGuitars has begun filling requests for Skyrim mandolins, basses and guitars. So what are you waiting for? Sure, they’re $700, but guys, custom made Skyrim guitars! What’s more metal than that? (Obvious Winner)
Maybe now that they’re pepper-spraying helpless Pokemon we can get really outraged. (TDW)
A little girls plays Skyrim and learns an important lesson, adorably. People don’t want to be sword. (The Mary Sue)
