I was most impressed by the poorly translated blog, purportedly written by the apple himself.

upgrade the image of the apple to a successful and healthy premium product

I'm not aware of any claims that the apple is a dying, unhealthy product....

Is this an inappropriate time to make a "plo chops and applesauce" joke?

Possibly, but I'm glad you didn't let that stop you.

Every apple can be traced back to the farm it was grown on.

Why do these apples need to be enjoyed IMMEDIATELY? Can't I wait until lunch? Why do I have to have one RIGHT. FUCKING. NOW.

I feel as if a ridiculously strong Austrian apple farmer is getting ready to hold me down and ram apples down my throat.

Oh, this is great. My oldest & dearest friend is from Trofaiach in Styria, and she always gives me crap about Arnold being my governor. I just sent her an e-mail giving her grief about this. Ha!

Thanks!

I've always liked my fruit free of personality. I'll stick to my local apples, thanks.

It's his orchard where I grew and ripened to be as large and flawless as I am.

I'm confused ... is this the apple or Arnie speaking?

Why does it make sense to ship an apple from Austria to the US? Besides, it's a spawn of the Golden Delicious, which is successful for it's shelf life, not it's flavor (not today, anyway - maybe in the past, but the flavor that made it and the unrelated [except by name] Red Delicious popular has long been bred out of existence through selection and long-term cold storage before bringing them to market). By which I mean, screw you, Arnold apple, I have access to locally-grown Honeycrisps and Sweet Sixteens and Haralsons and McIntosh and many, many other delicious, successful healthy apple varieties.

Haven't found anyone nearby selling a Black Limbertwig though. Still want to try one of those.

Unleash the Power of Apples!!

A bushel of apples packed in each bar, plus a secret ingredient that unleashes the awesome power of apples!!!

I was hoping to find a slightly more butch apple than the Pink Lady or Honey Crisp that I could enjoy with my man friends at the dog fights.

Those are the first apples I've seen that can be described as cheesy.

This is even worse than the time he endorsed that Austrian beer, "I'll Be Bock."
