back to article Wal-Mart punts industrial strength feminine deodorant

There's an old saying* that Canada's a country where men are men - and so are the women. For proof, look no further than the local Wal-Mart tentacle, which demonstrates just how the local lasses apply their "Summer’s Eve Ultra Feminine Deodorant Spray": Wal-Mart screen grab showing industrial applicator for feminine deodorant …

    Arrr...when I was a girl...

    ...growing up on the Canadian prairies, we caught gophers and bit their heads off with our bare teeth. Deodorant? Leave that to those sissies below the 49th parallel.

    As opposed to Dundee

    Where the women are men and the men are sheep.

    Baaa.

    The IT angle

    Do you really think this juxtaposition of images would have been missed if a human being had been involved?

    We canadians are a tough lot

    The girls I knew used bald people as roll-on deodorants and sheep as tampons.

    IT angle? What IT angle?

    @blackworx

    Or just up the road in Aberdeen, where men are men and sheep are scared.

    Hahahaha!

    And where exactly does it say "Deodorant"?

    As for the IT angle...the applicator looks technological.. don't it?

    Paris, because she is a feminine spray.

    Not actually a site listing problem

    It's more a problem with the fact that they have separate ID and ImageID parameters in the URL. You can just fabricate any type of odd listing by changing the imageid parameter.

    They're really selling the (actual) product as "Ultra - Extra strength"?

    <boggle>

    Who the hell's gonna walk into a shop and ask for that? Bit of an embarassing admission, don't you think?

    This has to be about as bad a marketing move as would be selling "Micro-Mini size" condoms!

    Looks like a versions for teenagers

    Who need to use at least half a can a day, just to sulk in their bedrooms. Mines the one with a reassuringly unpleasant smelling nose peg in the pocket.

    Oooh

    Just checked the alternate shot. That thing compresses very nicely thankyouverymuch. What with conservation of energy/mass and whatnot it's probably the densest object on the planet, or close. Might be one or two Leaders of the Free World who can give it a run for its money...

    About half of the people who already commented have obviously not read the article nor seen a real vagina.

    Most of the others obviously have never hooked up with a Canadian woman. Their nether regions smell like lavender and taste like 1963 St. Julian.

    It looks like El Reg should launch a new competition (with prizes to match, of course): come up with the best "faked" Canadian Walrus-Mart listing. You're welcome.

    I like this. Randomly changing the IDs gives some ... interesting ... combinations. Entertaining. Shame its not friday.

    I'd choose different examples, but agree that Canadian women are indeed fragrant and delicious.
