We want you to unleash your weird side and send us your photos paintings sketches drawings collages comics illustrations poems lyrics raps haikus sonnets and ballads about your hooliganry. Merriam-Webster defines the word hooligan as “a usually young man who does noisy and violent things as part of a group or gang”, but we at Cote-Armour see a hooligan as a person of any age or gender who is a nuisance, but not in a violent or threatening manner. They’re not concerned with thoughts of others and more concerned with digging life in the weirdest and gnarliest way. Sure they can be dweeby, embarrassing, or silly, but they are happy with their actions and content with their reputation as a grade A goon.
