    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 S.U.D.

    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?

    I thought that was can I come wit? Or is that New York?

    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.

    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.

    Considering Rat did use the word whom in his explination to Pig, that means that the sign applies to himself as well. So I guess that means we must hate Rat as he wants the sign to be obeyed. At which point he will either say it is okay to use the word whom or that it is okay for him to use the word but anyone else must be hated. Most likely the latter. Foolish, foolish Rat.
