    something very VERY fishy about the winning entry of the competition !! “My Home is my Castle” was in 18th place with 24 hours left to go in the competition…..and the 2 top photo’s were up there with in excess of 2700 votes each…..the winner was not even a fraction close to that….all of a sudden the winner is announced as Paul Kinsella with My Home is my castle …..Jumped from 18th place to 1st in less than 24 hrs !!! it wasn’t done with the help of facebook either as the entrant only has a 29 friends on facebook and the account was only opened recently !! please shed some light on this??? is the person even real, or was the competiton a complete marketing tool all round !! very very unfair if it was on all the entrents

    I have been voting for your picture (the little green kid) when ever i think of it (just voted there) your picture is the funniest alright IMHO but this might be down to who ever gets the most votes which can be false. Best of luck though!!

    I have been voting for the little green kid when i think of it (have just voted again). If the comp is run for the funniest picture you deserve it IMHO but it may be a popularity contest which could be a total waste of time……Best of luck though!

    i’ve had Ms sixteen years I am now 32, I have severe tremor on my full left side this is being treated quite well by a DBS implant (I still shake a bit). Anyway to get to the point I entered this competition on the page on facebook to hopefully win €15,000. With this money I would pay off some long overdue bills and the rest would go towards building me a trike adapted to my needs. I have always been into bikes but because of my illness I will never be able to ride one. I was wondering if you would forward my link to all your contacts and ask them to vote for my picture ? Not only would this make my dreams come true but trikes are very noticable on our roads and mine would definitely raise MS awareness.

    Ah in fairness the kids and dog hardly put up the pictures themselves, so whoever took the pic will campaign! I really like the lads outside the house, very funny, and the one with the red shoes is very clever.

    Some of these pics are hilarious! The dog and the two kids are at a little disadvatage cause they wont be on facebook. The little green kid is the funniest – someone ring the ISPCC haha
