Who is Samot?

Who is Samot?
Nobody knows.
Some people think it is a bear.
I think it is too thin to be a bear.
Another people think it is a monkey.
I think its arms are too short for a monkey.
There are people who think it is a rabbit.
I think it doesn't have the ear like a rabbit.
Lots of people think it is a cat.
But where did somebody see a cat without a moustache?
Samot is not a bear.
Samot is not a monkey.
Samot is not a rabbit.
Maybe it is a person's baby wearing a fancy dress.
What do you think?


Is Samot a boy or a girl?

Who is Samot?
Some people think he is a boy.
Some people think she is a girl.
When I see Samot like that, I think he is a boy.
When I see Samot like this, I think the other way round and I am sure she is a girl.
When he is wearing the bownknot in front of his throat, people think he is a boy.
But when she is wearing the bownknot on the hair, people think she is a girl.
Only because she was playing football, people said she is a boy.
Only because he was playing of taking care of the house, they swear he is a girl.
I am sure about nothing.
And you?

Brother Samot is playing with strange things.
Sister Samot is a big truck's driver.

Or is this Granma Samot telling stories to the flowers?
