I am not Gong Mingyi!

Long ago, there is famed musician, called Gong Mingyi. He plays the zheng zither very well. But occasionally he does some silly things. One day, he sees a cow grazing the filed near his home. He feels a sudden inspiration and runs over and starts playing his zheng in front of the cow. The tune he plays is so melodious that even he goes intoxicated with it.But that cow shows no response to his beautiful music, seeming to only care about the grass it’s eating. GongMingyi thinks it is strange. After a pause, he starts to play again. But this time, the tune he plays isn’t so pleasant to hear. The music he plays sounds like the buzzing of mosquitoes and gadflies, intermingled with the calls of calves. Hearing the music, the swings its tail instantly and begins to relish the music with erect ears. Gong Mingyi smiles. “Obviously, the cow didn’t respond to my music not because I played it badly, but because it doesn’t understand and is unable to appreciate that abstruse tune.” 

Play the lute to a cow——address the wrong audience; cast pearls before swine; talk over sb.'s head; If you talk to them about the theory of relativity, you will be barking up the wrong tree. 

So, don't explain it to him, it's only playing the lute to a cow!!!!!!!
