“Whom” Comic

First the comic…


Two lessons here. Maybe three.

  • First: first panel. She’s actually asking “Who is it?” That’s correct. “Who” is the subject of the implied sentence.
  • Next: third panel. He misstates her question, but “whom” is okay in his sentence. “Whom” is the object of the preposition.
  • Finally: Her displeasure is appropriate, I suppose, but she should have used “who” because it’s the subject of the sentence.

I guess the moral is to be careful about whom you play video games with.
