Frozen turkeys and euro calculators: 10 very weird (or wonderful) pics our readers sent us

Sometimes we are sent really useful news tips and pictures, other times we are sent really weird – but wonderful – things like this.

OVER HERE AT headquarters we get sent some really random stuff via email.

Some of it is hilarious. Some of it is heartbreaking.

While more of it is, well, just plain weird.

Since we started doing this post last year, you all copped on and started sending in even more weird sh*te.

So here’s a look at some of the surprises we got when we opened our inboxes over the last few weeks. As we slacked off on this over the winter months, many are Christmas-related. Just to make it extra, time-warpy weird.
