    They got one part right- it sure does open cans of all sizes!

    “really SUCKS”
    Ha ha.

    No no, you have it wrong – that has a food processor attached to the top of it. And a handle, for uh, portability.

    It’s a vacuum-can opener! Man that’s so cool. I want one!

    Pshhhhh. Check out the disclaimer: “PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS ARE PROVIDED BY SUPPLIERS AND ARE NOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED BY WAL-MART. ANY REPRESENTATION, PERFORMANCE CLAIM, WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE WITH RESPECT TO ANY PRODUCT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SUPPLIER OF THAT PRODUCT.”

    FAIL.

    It is false advertising.

    From the logo on it, it is clearly a Hoover can opener, not a Black and Decker can opener.

    Look at the url, there’s a tag called “imageid”, makes it easy to make a spoof link.

    Whats the problem here? Through a revolutionary new design the item pictured can not only suck the top right off a can, but it is also a vacuum – which is why its a 2-in-1 Can Opener.

    Deja Vu.

    It is Canada after all.

    OK, so it opens the industrial size can of cheddar cheese goop (read: nacho topping), but does it open my cat’s small can of food. I think not! Where would you conveniently store this behemoth?

    According to the FARK thread, any spoofed URLs made actually show up in search results.

    I would *love* to be a fly on the wall when WalMart figures all this out.

    What’s funny to me is that two days later no one has clued in Walmart Canada’s tech people to fix it so you can’t spoof. hee
