Which is the correct usage to end the following sentence?
[person] is not as [adjective] as you and I [am/are].
I'd also like to see some good fill-in-the-blanks.

Personally, being a fan of brevity, I'd go with door number three: neither.
Eeyore isn't as fun as you and I.
In a pinch though, you'd certainly need the plural verb:
Winnie the Pooh isn't as tall as you and I are.
The "and" makes "you" and "I" a group of two people, so the plural has to be used.
Are, but we are would be much more likely.
