Haven't read that title myself, I don't really understand their talk and how it relates to apples (any clarification about that would be greatly appreciated by me btw), but the train metaphor seems logical and may be what Ikuhara had in mind. But what I really need to know is how everything links back to... penguins at the end.

And YAY for 'penguin' tag!
