After Michael Bay made is fateful statement about making the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aliens, my best estimate is that about 87% of the internet has been consumed by nerd rage over the topic. Since Saturday we’ve seen a steady stream of reactions, from actors and actresses to one of the original creators as well as multiple comments here and on our Facebook. The Above image (by Bobby Rubio via The Uniblog) is a great representation of how most seem to feel about the subject.
Since the flames don’t seem to be dying down anytime soon, we’ve rounded up some more, including some amusing sketches from TMNT comic book artist Jim Lawson so buckle in ’cause it’s going to get a bit rough. Hit the jump for more.
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 email@example.com.
Leave it to a geek to see the potential for art not simply with colored pencils, but rather in colored pencils. For more check out Ghostpatrol’s Flickr gallery. (Nerd Approved)
This is pretty much exactly what I have imagined for soo long. Finally, the internet is like high-school! Hmmmm.. Why isn’t anyone pregnant? This makes no sense, I don’t feel secure, I’m not in a safe place.. *Hyperventilates* Wait a second. I’m sure that, from what I’m assuming, girl representing 4chan is pregnant. OH, those 4chan kids, *laughs good naturally at self* they love them some good (insert any crazy, awful, disheartening, sick, twisted, demented, or any-other synonym for disgusting here). But it’s ok. If you’re a regular visitor to 4chan, then don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you’re going to hell. It just means that you’re super creepy and I don’t want you to watch me sleep anymore… Or do I? Other than that, I totally think eBay is blowing Twitter because she has self esteem issues and wants to feel prettier than Last Fm. Facebook is that pure untainted christian girl at the party that everyone is trying to give a rufie. Wikipedia is in love with Facebook, but is too much of a vagina to make a move so he just accepts the friend card and thinks it’s better than nothing.. But it really isn’t. Youtube is trying to get with Last Fm, but his quirky weirdness just makes him the “comedian”. And for some strange fucking reason Last Fm likes Yahoo, the guy’s obviously a loser but has a lot of friends. He’s indifferent because he’s so oblivious to what a vagina actually is. And Myspace is in a ditch dying slowly while drug addicts have their way with him.. Enjoy!
