You may have heard of the Twitter hashtag #journorequest, which journalists and PRs alike use as a tool to find stories or case studies. They are often really helpful, making us aware of features they’re working on and even resulting in coverage for our clients – but there are many requests along the way that make us laugh and sometimes despair. They can sometimes be incredibly broad, and sometimes very, very niche… to provide some light relief for journalist and PRs everywhere, here are some of the funniest requests we’ve seen:

  1. “Need a lady who has had sexual experience with a ghost. £500. Serious request but feel free to RT if you find funny #journorequest”
