Actually, "me" always refers to an object, the one running the handler.
If the handler is in a field, "me" is a reference to the field. This:
put "xxx" into me
is the same as:
put xxx into fld <fld reference>
where <fld reference> is the one containing the handler.
But if you really want to have fun (and this is a good example of why
"the" is so important, as per another thread), take a look at "target":
target = contents of the object
the target = reference to the object
