Throw Grammar from the Train: The desk whom he was selling

If you ever get a “who” or “whom” with a green wavy line on your manuscript, check the usage note (click on “Explain” in the grammar check window) and be enlightened with Word’s examples.

 

Could this be the honest effort of a non-native speaker, or is it evidence of a sly sense of humor lurking behind the grammar checker’s sober exterior? And are there other entries with equally subversive usage “explanations”? That would be the best surprise of all.
