Interesting. We're slowly inventing a subtly different, but intimately related, kind of joke: the kind which depends on special knowledge of the identity of the speaker.

"I am NOT working for Pepsi again!", MJ flamed.

"Did you say Aaron Burr? That guy's crazy!", Alex shot back.

"I haven't come up with any new songs lately", Alanis said ironically.

These are not classic Swifties; they're something else, for which we need a name. Proposals gladly accepted.
