Just look at them and sigh...

This conversation took place some time ago, Fabio was still 11 y.o.
We were at the table speaking italian.
–The Virgin in english must be Batwoman– he said.
–"Why?"– I said.
–Because "ma" in english is "bat" and "donna" is "woman", and so "Madonna" in english is "Batwoman" said him as if it was absolutely logic.
–Not "bat" but "but", with the letter "u"!– said Roberta.
–Aaahhhh!– he said, and I'm not sure if there was some cunning nuance in his eyes.
