Drawing at random a request from the hat, today we examine the difference between "who" and "whom".
Well, generally, "who" is used when it's the subject of the sentence and "whom" when it's the object.
Which, for you non-grammarians out there, basically means this: if you're not sure, rephrase the sentence to have either "he" or "him" in it. If you find yourself saying "he", then use "who", and if "him", use "whom".
Who/whom took my last bloody rolo?
He took my last bloody rolo.
Who took my last bloody rolo?
To who/whom shall I give a good kicking?
I shall give him a good kicking.
To whom shall I give a good kicking?
As a special treat for those of you who bothered to click through, I have included a fatuous Friday afternoon poll. The title should read "Who is the sexiest bastard in today's World o' Pop?"
Feel free to answer as imaginatively as you please...
Who's the sexiest?
Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters
anyone from Franz Ferdinand
Someone else? (ha!) But who?
