    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?

    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.

    It’s not surprising, up here in Canada the PQ’s are always wanting to separate.
