Today Bill Nye, a monkey, tried to get some water (he had forgotten to bring some camping). I tried to find out where Bill went for the water and a student said Bill Nye. He had misheard the question.
I went with it. First, the kid got to provide a cute answer to the story, which brings ownership. Second, the story was funnier, because Bill Nye the Science Guy was being a asked a question by Bill Nye the monkey.
My students are never wrong.
