Friday Funnies: Why I Still Use the Oxford Comma

So this week, your Friday Funny deals with one of my personal pet peeve topics: the Oxford Comma.


shortee over at tumblr originally posted this graphic and I fell in love with it.

For the record, not all grammar comics are right, and this happens to be one of them. For it to mean the orange juice is on the toast, there should be an "and" in between eggs and toast. Both sentences read very similarly, and the intent appears obvious even without the commas.

In the end, I don't know about you, but the idea of orange juice on my toast is gross. YMMV, of course.
