Angry notes, doggy drivers and men sewing: 13 weird pictures 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.

Since we started doing this post, you have 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:
