Piranha Plant

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)

Forever Alone, train alone. (Nerd Approved)


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 Sure, the 64 is way out of date, but it’s a classic.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)

Nerd Cake Of Awesomeness


This cake is called the Awesome Cake and it isn’t hard to see why.  It was created by Barbarann Garrard and it is made of win.  It has everything a nerd could want.  A zombie riding a unicorn, a rainbow for the unicorn to feel more magical by, skulls, robots and lollipops.  Then you have the Zeus inspired lightning bolts and a Mario piranha plant.  This cake would only be cooler if it had a Harry Potter wand or a vampire fang somewhere in there.  More pictures of the cake under the jump.


Bricks are appropriate. by Jaime Margary.

My god, this is scary as hell. I will never look at Mario Brothers the same again or rather Piranha Plants the same again. Hell I always thought these fire ball spewing plants were harmless creatures that just had a fear of plumbers. Heck they live in sewer pipes…shouldn’t they want to defend their home from pesky plumbers? I digress. See as harmless as I thought these guys are, the magnificently talented Jamie Margary thought otherwise. Using wire, clay and acrylics, he constructed his vision of what a Piranha plant from Super Mario would look like in real life and it’s terrifying. I mean holy waffles, this thing is going to haunt my dreams for the next week. As evil looking as it is I must say it’s pretty freaking cool. Jamie gets a thumbs up from us.
