Carl's last correction is erroneous on two counts. First, *that* is fine as a defining relative pronoun. It is preferable to the non-defining forms *who* and *whom* where the antecedent is being defined by the clause introduced. Secondly, being wary of preposition-at-end is needless, affected, pretentious and stultifying.

*that* as used in the cartoon is not being used as a defining relative pronoun. In its series strictest sense, a defining relative pronoun would be "this car" or "that person," but in this sense, the correct INDICATIVE would be Which or Whom, since it is the object of the preposition..

The last correction is incorrect; "around" is a preposition also, so the proper correction should be "with whom no one wants to hang."

Or, "around whom no one wants to hang."

In this case, though, around is not being used as a preposition, because last I checked, prepositions don't modify verbs; around is being used to modify hang, as an adverb. "How do you want to hang? Just hang around. "

You can end a sentence with a preposition, the "rule" that you can't is a nonsense. Up with that shit I shall not put.

The whole preposition-at-the-end-of-the-sentence thing comes from German, where verbs often have "separable prefixes" that can be moved to the end of the sentence. For example, the verb "herumlungern" translates to "loafing around". The prefix, herum, is a preposition that can be moved to the end of the sentence when needed.

I love this comic! Grammar Nazi's can be annoying sometimes but I think those with poor grammar sound silly. I think English speakers should not settle with 'sounding right' or 'being understandable enough'. They should also be grammar conscious, especially when they write. No wonder--most papers like essays and term papers nowadays are poorly written except if written by professionals.

Awkward wording does not really figure out whether or not something is grammatically appropriate. It can be appropriate and awkward, but being awkward does not invariably mean it is appropriate. sorry, wish I had a better response for you, but would need an example to provide a immediate yes or no.

You shared interesting story in the pictures about grammatically awkward.

There are a lot of grammar and spelling mistakes. Several punctuation mistakes - "we needed" for "we need" "In a very low level" for "at a very low level" "we had to win" for "we have to win" "incite younger" for "inspire young players" etc.
