Finally, A Comic That Explains How To Use “Whom” In A Sentence Correctly!

English grammar can be extremely tricky to grasp and use correctly, especially if English isn’t your first language. Having exclusively spoken English my entire life, even I find our weird rules and linguistic pitfalls a bit of a well, let’s be honest: a ballache. Barely any of it makes sense! The trickiest one of all though has to be the madness that is “whom” and “who”. I’ve never seen the former written down but have been corrected multiple times whilst speaking, but I have no idea why?

Thankfully, hilarious entertainment site The Oatmeal have released a recent comic that can explain exactly how to and why we use “whom” and “who”:

                        10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

                        Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

                        It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
