While on tower freq for VGT (North Las Vegas), I overheard the following:

Cessna 1234N:
"Tower, this is Cessna 1234N, 10 miles northwest with yankee, inbound full stop."

Tower:
"Cessna 1234N, tower. Continue inbound. Report 4-mile final for runway 12 right."

Cessna 1234N:
"Tower, Cessna 1234N reporting 4-mile final."

Tower:
"Cessna 1234N cleared for landing. Runway 12 right. Say type, Cessna."

Cessna 1234N:
"Tower, 1234N is a Cessna 152 Heavy!"

Tower:
"Cessna 1234N, roger!"

(And before the mike keyed off, there was substantial chuckling in the background.)
