    Well, with this thread am finally coming to grips with a certain poster's fatal attraction
    with the word whom despite the advice he has been given from many quarters. In this post
    I will give you a glimpse of what the English world would look like if whomits catches on. In
    a few examples its use may be grammatically correct, but awkward.

    I will have to use a decidedly incorrect contraction at times.

    Here goes!

    Well look whom's talking!
    Whom's calling?
    Whom's that?
    Whom is it?
    Whom goes there?
    Whom are you?
    Do you know whom you're talking to?
    Whom do you think you are?

    Owls now go : whom, whom.

    Ladies and gentlemen, introducing that famous British rock band :The Whom!

    It's a veritable whom's whom list.

    Knock, knock. Whom's there?

    That's a bunch of whomey!

    It's a whomdunit mystery.

    Whom's on first?

    Songs

    Whom can it be now?
    Whom wants to buy a heart?
    Whom can I turn to?
    Whom's cheating whom?
    Whom am I?
    Whom ya gonna' run to?
    Whom's sorry now?

    Special category of "songs" :

    Whom let the dogs out?

    My favorite Sci-Fi TV show is Doctor Whom.

    "For Who the Bell Tolls"
    "Horton Hears a Whom"

    [1978] We're going to do a song from our new album, titled, "Whom are You?"

    [bouncy synthesizer melody]

    Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?
    Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?
    Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?
    Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?

    I woke up in a Soho doorway
    A policeman knew my name
    He said, "You can go sleep at home tonight
    If you can get up and walk away"

    I staggered back to the underground
    And the breeze blew back my hair
    I remember throwin' punches around
    And preachin' from my chair

    Well, whom are you?
    (Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?)
    I really wanna know
    (Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?)
    Tell me, whom are you?
    (Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?)
    'Cause I really wanna know
    (Whom are you? Whom, whom, whom, whom?)

    etc. etc.
