Cougar: The Cologne
Ol’ John Cougar personally helped develop this dang ol’ stink-sauce mating juice. It’s a mix-churr of farm waste, unfiltered cigarettes, fresh pork cracklings, the elbow grease of a workin’ man, and the fleetingness of time. It’s the closest you can get to smellin’ like like ol’ John Cougar without incurring the wrath of Yr!

I, Ol’ John Cougar: The Story of Ol’ John Cougar
Some people said ol’ John Cougar’s couldn’t write good because he’s from a small town, and English what is his ninth language and his first one that y’all mortals can even understand. It’s easy what to write a book when you can mind-rape the words out from any lyberry book, swirl em up in your brain real good then make em come out all nice. And if you just change all the names of the peoples in a Theodore Dreiser novel to ”ol’ John Cougar,” ain’t nobody gonna take yous to court, and if they did, I’d gaze upon them and what melt their flesh, make it hotter than the Final Day gonna be, I tell ya.
