Art is Subjective

My 17 year-old daughter, Fudge, in College in NY, spent Shabbos with my sister, her Aunt R. R is the mother of two adorable boys, ages 5 and 2. We'll call them Thing 1 and Thing 2, respectively.

Thing 2 was showing Fudge a picture:

Fudge: What's that?

Thing 2: A bicycle.

Aunt R: No it's not! It's a tree.

Thing 2: Yeah.

Thing 2 then turns to a picture of George Washington chopping down a tree.

Fudge: What's that?

Thing 2: A bicycle.

Aunt R: No it's NOT! It's George Washington!

He then turns to a picture of Curious George, the monkey.

Fudge: What's that?

Thing 2: George Washington.

Interesting picture sequence!

Tree --> George chops tree --> George is a monkey.

Am I reading into this too much?

Ezzie, Curious George, the movie must be really hitting hard with the promos in NY!
