    Although I could certainly see how someone might derive this and it may make a certain amount of sense, the word exists in niether formal or coloquial language.

    In formal AE, I would say "Who threw him- or herself at whom."

    How often is this word used?


    Who threw whomself at who?

    Is this something you have seen written or is it something you have heard?

    Perhaps this was a conversation at a nightclub
    A: Mumblemumble threw himself at Mumblemumble.
    B: What? I can't hear you. Who threw himself at who?;)

    Welcome to the Forum, by the way.

    Perhaps it was meant to be himself not whomself?
