EH Thanks guys

10 of the weirdest 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 sometimes get sent in really, REALLY random stuff.

While for the most part our readers send us news tips and pictures that are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they’re really not.

We used to post some of the weird sh*te that got sent our way, and while we haven’t done it in a while we think it’s time to bring back the randomness.

So here’s a look at some of the surprises we got when we opened our inboxes recently:

Do you see Christ? Do you?

One reader sent in this photo on Easter Monday saying, “I spotted the body of Christ appearing in the clouds over Sandyford last night… thought it was uncanny timing!!”


Rain, hail or shine

This reader took the time to get photo of some rain in Ireland – imagine!

They sent it in with the caption, “An impressive hail storm in Passage East”.

Thanks for that. 


“The pig in the farm…”

Thought you were a dab hand at writing?

Take a look at this lovely poem we were sent, which was written by a 7-year-old:


Bunny boys

No, it’s not a new trend. This picture below was actually sent in by an agency trying to resurrect the man bun! Try harder lads.


A revolutionary receipt

One reader sent us in a receipt of her husband’s Spar receipt from St Patrick’s Day.

It was €19.16 and she was VERY excited. The caption had five exclamation marks. Five.

1916!!!!! Amazing


Keeping in the 1916 theme – we also received this sign of O’ Keeffe’s Shop, Thomastown Co Kilkenny.


The Dude abides

Another reader sent us in this snap with the caption: “Just a pic of the dude on Killiney beach.”


Red, red wine

Fancy a drop of cheap vino? You’d want to head to Spain for that. One reader wanted to alert us to the cheap wine in Espana. Okay.


Take a bite

Now this is random: here’s an ad for “a half used cake”.

Honestly, lads.


Happy birthday Benny!

Do you remember Benny and Alfie from the Benny’s birthday last year? It was a hoot.

Benny’s owner was back in touch this year to to show us how “Benns outlived them all and he’s having a ball.”

And yes – they are wearing jumpers with each other on them. Obviously. It’s Benny’s birthday.
