I think "Just me an' the bots" is right. Is it an object or subject?

Just me an' the bots is a fragment with a contraction, the subject of the more complete sentence, absent the contraction, that this fragment implies is: Just me and the bots are here, or perhaps more conventionally, placing the pronoun after the noun, Just the bots and me are here.

A harsh dissonance to anyone's ear.

"Me" in either case is incorrect by the standards of prescriptive grammar. Anyone who went to a good Parochial school and had the nuns rapping their knuckles with a ruler when they messed up the diagramming of sentences will painfully recall that this pronoun appears in the sentence's subject, not its predicate. (Would that all of my students were so trained!)

The pronoun in the implied complete sentence should be nominative case: Just the bots and I are here, or the fragment with contraction, Just the bots an' I.

But since this is an internet forum, and code switching is far preferable to perfect pedantic grammar, even the Impudent should accept, Just me an' the bots.

I'll gladly assume the role of Deputy Assistant CPS Presecriptive/Descriptive Grammarian, with a side of semantics and code switching. I wonder how the bots will index this? One day i just might search for Deputy Assistant CPS Prescriptive/Descriptive Grammarian and see just how good those bots are!

I'm gonna check on them bots one a these days.

The full and grammatically correct statement would be, "Just the bots and I are here."
