Cooleytime Castle, Home of the Black Cougar

Hello, Bog readers. It's Lindsay Applebaum again. You know how sometimes you'll do something simple, like search on YouTube for "Redskins fan videos," and then you'll end up discovering something even greater and wilder than you could possibly dream up, complete with leather jackets, red hair dye and superheroes? No?

Meet former "American Inventor" contestant Silvio DiSalvatore, creator of the Black Cougar, "the first superhero who has one goal: to protect children."

As it turns out, DiSalvatore, who looks like some sort of cross between Eddie Money and Barbra Streisand, happens to be a Redskins fan/Philly hater and the proprietor of the Cooleytime47 channel on YouTube. He wrongly believes that the Redskins' colors include red, but makes up for it by wearing sunglasses indoors, talking about how much he loves his "locks" and trash-talking Philadelphia fans.

From his YouTube page (you can't make this stuff up):

This week tune in as I look for Redskins fans in the Bronx. That's right taken it to the Bronx. Sure to have some fun with the Giants Fans.Thurday is Prediction Day from the heart of the Cooley Time Castle with my Crystal Balls.

Click here for the latest video (language may be NSFW).

Here's what I'm saying: F PHILLY! 4-1 here we come!

He's just trying to protect kids from gingivitis.
