LOL Kurt

Methinks 'who' is the object - n'est ce pas?

As in

"You are calling whom a toady?"

But to quote my son -

No no you see the rules of language are purely arbitrary stodgy
ivory-tower crap we doesn't have to worried aboard because everytime
history on you rebendible sausage mountain.

If you're calling him on his grammar it's my understanding that 'who'
and not 'whom' is appropriate in that sentence. 'Who' is correct
because it is the subject and not the object of the sentence. Unless
of course you were playing on the sentence's typo and felt that the
reaction to the sentence should also include another error.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Just exactly who are you calling a toady?
