Spotted by reader PK Munroe.

A crapoteur is someone who smokes tobacco without inhaling. I have no experience in these matters, but it seems to me that this would render an electronic cigarette entirely pointless. So “Crapoteur” is a crap name for a product that, if used as implied, wouldn’t do crap, because it wouldn’t put any crap in your lungs. Perhaps to make up for it, the store sells caps.
