chips off the old block
The only situation I can think of is in China or in an ESL classroom. "Yu, is Hu here?"
I could also vaguely imagine it working in a discussion of some piece of literature that uses the second person--"You" is who, here?
Bingo! We were looking at pronouns at work, and the question could have been stated thus: "In this particular sentence, to whom does the word 'you' refer?" But it didn't quite come out that way.
Ah, I was going to guess that it had some relation to Abbot and Costello's "Who's on First?"
