My favorite instance of this is from the 25th Anniversary (I believe) show of "Sesame Street". Kevin Clash, who plays Elmo, was describing how his daughter would ask him if she could "talk to Elmo" and then "talk to Elmo" about her dad, not knowing she was talking to her dad (this was on the phone).

That's very funny, and not just because Elmo is one of my favourite SS characters. *g*

Having just seen the documentary Trekkies on Cable this morning, there were similar examples of this in that film. Furthermore, this seems related as well to the fan fiction phenomenon and there is lots of critical writing about that subject. I also think this is popular with soap operas and there may be a literature there to be accessed as well.

I keep meaning to rent Trekkies from the video store - because it looks hilarious - but my husband's not too keen. I wonder if anyone here has seen it?
