Default Charango wit

I stopped by McCabes in West L.A. to pick up some charango strings so that I could turn my Mandriola into a charango. The salesman said:

Do two charangos make a churighto?

Thought it was funny.

I did, too - I laughed out loud. Then I read your post aloud to my wife, and she laughed, as well (I used to own a charango, so she gets the humor.)
