Handles are not ears

Why on earth do we say Little pitchers have big ears? I know, il faut pas trop y reflechir with proverbs and all, but it suddenly occurred to me how stupid that is.

If you don't know, the phrase means that you can't say n'importe quoi in front of kids, thinking that they are too young or too stupid to absorb what you're saying.

But why do children become pitchers and since when do pitchers have ears at all? I think I need to lie down and stop thinking.
