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.

He may have no ears or a nose and is a dead ringer to he who shall not be named; Lord Voldermort, but is this cat any really different compared to his film double? Lord Voldermort is a bigger pussy, he can’t even kill a kid, he needs his litter to do that for him. This cat lost its ears and nose to skin cancer and may resemble his magic capable twin but he still has a heart of gold. Known by many as Charlie, he’s original owners abandoned him and he is now up for adoption.

Pokemon with Animals

Screen shot 2011-01-13 at 10.17.05 PM

As a former Pokemon obsessed kid (yes, I admit it), I remember all the long hours I spent playing that game in a vain attempt to “Catch ’em all.”

Every now and then, I’ll catch some mention of it and laugh, as I remember the stupid cartoon show, movies and playing cards. I am surprised that more people have not made fun of it, as it is SO ripe for comedy.

Luckily for us, YouTube user TheHamWalletDotCom decided to answer our prayers with an extremely funny video showing what Pokemon would be like if it were slightly more grounded in reality.

Be warned though, it is 100 percent NSFW. Other than that little caveat, enjoy!

Image of the Day: I am Batman! (LOLCat)

“Because he's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now…and so we'll hunt him…because he can take it…because he's not a hero…he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector…the Dark Knight.

“Because he's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now…and so we'll hunt him…because he can take it…because he's not a hero…he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector…the Dark Knight.

Not that the LOLCat phenomenon needs explanation, but for those unfamiliar with this murky world, it involves a photo of a cat with superimposed type representing what the cat is thinking. (And yes, it’s a combination of ‘Laugh Out Loud’ and ‘cat’.) a bizarre mash-up of baby-talk and the creative typing make it the cutest and damn near most addictive Meme.

Now, what happens when you cross Lolcats — with the Batman? Well, probably the same thing you get when you cross a cat with Catwoman (which…that’s just F’N Bizarre). There really are no words for this. No, really. NO CAPTIONS. Just the cold dead stare of a cat that is not amused.

I have no idea how you make a cat sit still for this long enough. Unless, of course there was the promise of cheesburgers. Only Adam Rudegeair, truly knows.

For you PETA punks out there that think this is some form of animal abuse y’all need to ask yourself:

Next time you decide to run down to the pet store to buy Rufus or Fido a new toy think very carefully about what they might want. Maybe a new bone, a new rawhide, new squeaky toy, or maybe, just maybe a new lightsaber. And when you get home and they come running up to you trying to stuff their noses in the bag, let them. And then sit back and watch as their eyes light up and a grin forms across their sharp teeth, and as they start drooling over the fact they now have their very own lightsabers. And remember, the lightsaber is for them…NOT YOU!!!!
