Practical Jokes


We Irish love a good old moan. In fact, we absolutely adore it.

Any public service, every government decision, every piece of mail that's lost.

But it's safe to say, after seeing this, we will never say a bad word about An Post again. 

As detailed in the genius This Blog Delivers, one ambitious individual recently decided to REALLY put our mailing service to the test.

Indeed, they have already sent several different letters, each with confusingly cryptic addresses – all to see what the good folk at the GPO would be able (or bothered) to deliver.

And the results are hilariously impressive…


A dice with one line of the address on each side. An Post delivered it two days later. 


They also delivered this letter where the address could only be read by looking in a mirror…


The sender said that this jigsaw address was delivered along with "a polite note explaining why they opened it. That is horribly impressive." Yes, yes it is.


The delivery people had to pull the arrows to reveal the address. It arrived at its terminus the next morning. 


Could An Post really be bothered to solve a crossword to discover this letter's chosen destination? Yep; they sure did – it was delivered.  


And so it should be fairly unanimously acknowledged… An Post is officially up for the craic. 



Our thoughts are with actress Jennifer Lawrence this morning after she revealed she wasn’t treated like the celeb royalty she truly is on the set of latest movie, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2.

The twenty-four-year-old Oscar winner opened up in a recent interview and revealed that fellow co-stars gifted her with dozens of chirping crickets which she couldn’t get out of her trailer “for months”. Ew.

To make matters worse, Chris Martin’s ex recalled how the insects were presented to her in the world-famous Tiffany’s box to ensure the star was dealt the maximum blow.

Reliving the terrible memory, Jen says: “It was the most awful combination of feelings in the world. It was like, 'Tiffany's!? Jeffrey! You didn't have to do that!' And then I opened it…it was awful. And they were in my trailer for months, I couldn't get them out.

Her co-stars are far from remorseful with Josh Hutcherson admitting: “We just love giving her crap all the time, and whether it’s a prank or just, you know giving her a hard time, it’s the best." Frankly, we don't know how they sleep at night.

This movie star lifestyle isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
