    And just exactly what’s wrong with using “whom” when it’s grammatically appropriate?

    Rat doesn’t know with whom he’s dealing. Adding a preposition (like “with” and “to”) at the end of a sentence is bad English grammar.

    @templo SUD

    No, it’s proper Chicago grammar, as in , “Can I come with?” The ‘you’ is implied.
    “Where are you going to?”

    I’m with Rat on the “Love the Who” part; not so much the rest of the sign.
    —-Baba, oh Really?

    has anyone seen the ITT Tech ad where the guy totally misuses “whom”? it’s just too hard…

    As a fervent Whomer, I am offended, Pastis! I demand an apology from Pig, and from Rat, and from whomever else is in cahoots with this ungrammatical gang of agitators!

    I guess I would be on rat’s bad list. (I can live with that.) At least writing, I take the trouble to get “whom” in the right places. What really sounds stupid though, is using “whom” where it should be “who”. “Whom do you think you are?” for instance.

    People who say “come with,” rarely do. . ..

    There really are only two kinds of people in the world, though…People who think there are only two kinds of people in the world, and those who don’t..

    So if someone who uses ‘Whom’ is a ‘Whomer’, does that mean that someone who uses ‘Who’ is a ‘Who-er’

    I think most of my friends are who-ers.

    Varnes, I’m sure you know there are actually 10 kinds of people in the world…
    those who understand binary and those who don’t.
