10 of the weirdest pictures we've been sent by readers

Sometimes we are sent really useful news tips and pictures, other times we are sent weird sh*t like these.

AT THEJOURNAL.IE HEADQUARTERS we get sent some random stuff.

From time to time, readers send us news tips and pictures, and while for the most part they are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they are not.

So, here are some of the weirdest pictures we’ve been sent. Mind you, this is just a small sample we get a lot of these every week. A lot.

Padraic Multy sent us this picture of his brand, spanking new Xbox. “Just got the new Xbox. It’s quality, superb even,” he said. It really is Padraic.

We don’t know how to caption this one.

Our personal favourite, tights hanging out of the end of the bed. Sure, why not?

Niamh Kerin sent us this wondering what sort of creature it was. We don’t know Niamh, we have no idea.

Liam Grennan cannot fathom how this guy on Grafton Street can do what he does. “It’s browning me,” he says.

Answers on a postcard please.

This guy loves his new Vans so much he sent us this blurry picture of them. Why, thank you very much.


A picture of someone’s Six Million Dollar Man. Why?
