While eating out at a Greek’s place I spotted this poster as a decoration. Wow… another man as a machine…
It took me a while but with the help of Google’s reverse image search I found a proper digital version of it. And it took me another hour to translate the text written on the poster… Sorry for any mistakes, but this is what I got out of Google translate more or less:

Made of olive oil
Ideal for healthy eating.
