Hurricanes present next evolution of ‘Bunch of Jerks’ trolling


The Carolina Hurricanes are not yet done having fun with Don Cherry’s “bunch of jerks” criticisms. Cherry might even feel compelled to claim they’re being jerks about it.

After printing amusing T-shirts with what’s basically becoming the slogan of the 2018-19 Carolina Hurricanes, the team really leaned into it on Tuesday.

Of course, most importantly - we think most importantly - the Hurricanes took care of business in the competitive East playoff races, as they absolutely pummeled the Los Angeles Kings by a score of 6-1.

All of that winning must inspire some creativity and swagger, from this projection, shared by Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon:

To this tremendous win celebration:

Fun stuff, to the point of possibly being a rallying cry. If you’re one of those people who’ve been getting annoyed by this - or just wonder if this team is “serious” enough to compete as they run through creative antics, then this feels like bad news. It seems like the Hurricanes are only going to bigger, bolder, and funnier with these celebrations.
