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 …
Ah Canada..the home also of Anti-poof hair.
Sadly that is now a promo site for something else...however anti-poof is still listed here
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.
That takes care of Christmas for the other half...
I don't usually care that an IT angle is lacking as long as it's funny..
As opposed to Dundee
Where the women are men and the men are sheep.
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?
Or just up the road in Aberdeen, where men are men and sheep are scared.
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.
Too Bloody Right

So, just who's callin' who a sheila, mate?
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.
the one you can smell from 50 yards away.
Shome mishtake, shurely...
They're really selling the (actual) product as "Ultra - Extra strength"?
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.
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...
Not forgetting the lip gloss
Sally Hansen Lip Exfoliator & Moisturizer
Now she is my kind of Bicycle
This is a fun game isn't it!
For the gentlemen
and the ladies
@Shome mishtake, shurely...
shouldn't that be Microsoft condoms.
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.
No your thinking about this one, looks the same but its a very different product.
A 1963 St. Julian tuna?
Re:Not actually a site listing problem
That was good.

"Who the hell's gonna walk into a shop and ask for that? Bit of an embarassing admission, don't you think?"
Well, yeah... That's why they were shopping online to begin with,,,
Last but not least...
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.
What about the...
Person looking for a power washer and encountering a douche bag? (I mean besides the salesperson)
Mine's the one that smells like vinegar...
Some new tires?
In the words of Boothby Graffoe...
"I'm a bad man but I'm a much worse woman,
Cos I don't understand sanitary things.
I say 'Forget all that; just use a vampire bat'
It's eco-friendly and it's got wings"
Re: Not actually a site listing problem
I like this. Randomly changing the IDs gives some ... interesting ... combinations. Entertaining. Shame its not friday.
@ solomon grundy
I'd choose different examples, but agree that Canadian women are indeed fragrant and delicious.
