    Sorry, grammatically, it should be “me”…since it is the object of the sentence…

    If you’re a P-V-T, your duty

    Is to salute to L-I-E-U-T

    But if you brush the L-I-E-U-T

    The M-P makes you K-P on the Q-T

    I have to suspect P’s fed up about putting itself last and is moving on to Pi. P’s looking for a close relationship with a smaller letter, and is feeling really capital about it, too!

    … and Pi’s a number… and I do think it’s fair to note that Mi only thinks of itself!

    With all of the really clever comments already posted, I’m feeling a little quippled here…

    I’m guessing that P doesn’t know about just how much time Q has been spending with U, right?

    @Varnes

    Since the verb is “is”, “I” is not an object, it is a predicate complement. So I was told in school, but all it means to me is that “is” takes an object in the nominative case. I think the real reason is that Latin works that way, and 19th-century grammarians turned English backward and inside-out to try to make it resemble Latin. Some unusual features of English have been buried that way. For example, English is richer than other Indo-European languages in expressing aspects, but I never heard of aspects while learning about English grammar in schools.

    The bottom line is that, technically, the cartoon is grammatically correct.
