Guitar Ummachi

Kids say the darnedest things. This one will strike a chord if you know Tamil.

My kid saw a little idol of Goddess Saraswati holding a veena, and called it Guitar Ummachi. They were watching Thiruvilayadal movie, and saw Nandi playing the Mridangam. One of them goes, "How can a cow play the drums?" and the other responds "That's not real, he is wearing a mask, pretending to be a cow".

I am still thinking how to explain.
