What is there to say? One of the biggest cannons you are ever likely to see. As others say, worth seeing as you pass by but dont make a special trip to see it.
Seriously, why make such a fuss about it? It's a regular old cannon... It is nice to notice that it's there, "oh, how funny!"... Still, don't bother going there just because of it. However, if you're walking around Gent you'll definitely pass by, because it's in the middle of so many wonderful places to visit!
Some cities have a romantic fountain where you can throw coins in but Ghent students are a bit more straightforward. Making love on top of the cannon will make their relationship stay forever. So if you're really sure of your actual partner, it's an example to follow ;-) Older couples with fertility problems also tend to visit place.
