A goat mechanic and electric puns: 9 weird (and 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 TheJournal.ie 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, as well as some wonderful shots.

So here’s a look at some of the surprises we got when we opened our inboxes over the past 14 days. Keep ‘em coming.
