A funny little comic that can help those who can't remember when to use "who" and when to use "whom".

Cute, thank you! Sorry for nitpicking ;), but the shortcut suggested by the website doesn't always work, does it? Suggestion: "Simply answer your own question using he or him. If the answer is he, use who. If the answer is him, use whom." What about the following scenario? "Who is it?" ;)

PS: As a native speaker of German, I have sort of the opposite problem. Distinguishing between "who" and "whom" is not a problem, but I have to be careful not to use "whom" (in the right places) too often. Sometimes I intentionally say or write "who" instead of "whom" because I don't want to sound stilted.
