Or the act of referring to oneself in the third person.

Well?

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Bob Dole would disagree with this.

Pretty sure the Simpsons did that long before Family Guy.

I love it, especially when praising.

When doing some research work I ran across this gem:  "Bronwyn Hall was the main driving force behind the matching process, and it is only thanks to her monumental efforts that this task was accomplished."

This was a footnote from a paper written by Bronwyn Hall herself.

I also once received an e-mail from someone in the student association at my university, which began "[insert name] is writing to you with regards to" and ended with "[insert name] through [insert name]"

And that was a guy devoid of humour so it was pretty strange.

Not quite as funny as citing yourself citing yourself. Which certain people have done in the past.

I had a girlfriend who used to do that all the time.  It was creepy, but she was hot so I didn't let it bother me.  Then Bob Dole popularized it and now it doesn't seem as strange.

Even I do from time to time, but only when I'm talking to my son.  "Give Daddy a kiss."  "What did Daddy say about standing too close to the TV?"
