10 more of the weirdest pictures we’ve been sent 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 headquarters we get sent some really random stuff.

You see, our  readers can send us news tips and pictures, and while for the most part they are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they are really not. Really, really not.

We started showing you the kind of stuff we’re talking about and you all seemed to like it, and what makes you happy makes us happy, so here’s some more:

‘Lads, where the feck did I leave the van?’ Parked in a rather unfortunate spot at Laytown, Co Meath.

Jean-Michel Poinboeuf sent this picture to of Zola doing her best meerkat impression. She makes it look so ‘simples’.

This reader took this picture of what they believe to be a “rebellious camper at the Hill of Tara, Co Meath”. To be honest, we’ve seen worse. We really have.

#ENVIRONMENTAL ERECTION: A funny looking cloud *sniggers* over Dublin heading towards the, eh, light *sniggers again*.

“Spotted on Sandymount Beach. Anyone missing a buggy and a chair?” Eh, no would be the answer to that. You can keep them.

One of our readers said he “saw this amazing lady at Dollymount Strand”. She’s pretty impressive alright, but she might be a bit difficult to bring home to meet the auld pair.

A teacher correcting summer tests this week sent us this for a laugh, and oh how we did. Now, it’s been a while since we studied biology, but any old fool would know storks deliver the babies.

“Hey! Doggie DJ put a record on, I want to dance with me puppy,” says Stevey Walker. He really looks like he’s enjoying himself alright. Stevey that is, not the dog.

This reader thinks this is a picture of the Spire in Dublin city “taking off”. It’s just lights. That’s all. Nothing to see here.

Dylan says “Jaysis, look at what we have in Terenure”. Dylan, darling, it’s just a spider, we have them all over the country. We strongly suggest you don’t look in the bath or under the bed.

If you’d like to send us some news tips or pictures email us at or

However, if you have any images similar to the ones above, maybe you should keep them to yourself.
