grammatically speaking...

Riddle me this, Batman....

Just out of curiosity, does anyone get a *better* reading with a pronoun
instead of a noun phrase?  For example: "donate me this lamp" sounds a lot
worse than (while holding said lamp, saying) "donate me this".  Anyone share
this opinion?

Just wondering....
