10 of the weirdest and most brilliant pictures sent in by our readers

Sometimes we are sent really useful news tips and pictures, other times we are sent really weird crap like this.

OVER HERE AT TheJournal.ie headquarters we sometimes get sent in really, REALLY random stuff.

While for the most part our readers send us news tips and pictures that are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they’re really not.

We used to post some of the weird sh*te that got sent our way, and we now think it’s time to bring back the randomness.

So here’s a look at some of the surprises we got when we opened our inboxes recently:

Know something we don’t?

This charming mail came in to us stating:

“Here are some headstones. Let me know if you are interested.”

In wonder

One reader sent us in this drawing with the proud caption, “My 11 year old drew this, I think it’s deadly, just saying.”

Cha Ching

Another reader decided to express their shock about a scratch card:

“Matthews of Clones Newsagents has had some large wins over the years but never this amount on a scratch card.”

Fishy business 

We also got sent in this photo of a bluefin tuna displayed in a fish merchants in Cork but not only did we get a photo – we also received instructions on how best to cook it. Yes, really.

Note: the best way to cook it is to rub it in salt and pepper, wrap it in Turkey foil and lob it on a bonfire with pallets and tyres!

Revolutionary reg 

Another reader sent us in this photo of a car registration spotted in Orlando, Florida.

Aw lads

This photo of a bicycle very BADLY parked certainly got a reaction from the cyclists in the office.

It was sent in with the caption, “And in a busy spot too! … Have they no shame?”

Ridiculous carry on.

This still from a Sky News report was sent in with the caption, “Sky news camera a bit too close!”

Three, Two, One

Oliver Gargan from Cavan sent in this photo of himself, explaining:

“I had my camera set up on a Tripod and set it to a self timer and quickly raced to position myself.”

Feeling the love

So this may not technically – or in anyway – be a photo BUT someone got in touch with this very heartfelt message and we really wanted to show you how much we’re loved.
