Man, don't ever yell that at a musician playing in public. They might... actually do it. True story, I swear.

The story I heard was that at a Concert in Philly, a fellow happened to yell this at Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. So they started playing it the Mother's style with all the goofy noises and such they could.
Said heckler then demanded they do it right.
And they DID. Because those men were Musicians with a capital M.

Getting the fingering right doesn't matter if the player is bowing on the wrong side of the bridge, or not making contact at all between the bow and the strings.
She's playing air fiddle.
