    From Google Translate: (the cafe's name is Apfelkind, Google translates it to apple child)

    Be sure to check with Apple next time you buy an apple and tend to walk in public with it. If you bite, bite twice really fast lol.

    That's it. From this point on, Apple-customers should be handled just like anybody else who finances international terrorism.

    The logo looks nothing like Apple's.

    Apples credibility was dying and is now dead with Steve Jobs.

    Apple is now the poster child for capitalism.
