Friday Funnies: Comma Types

Click to embiggen

Here at fandom_grammar, we've covered commas several times in the past, so I won't necessarily rehash that information here.

Anyone that knows me knows that I'm a stickler for the Oxford comma. But when I first saw this graphic, I nearly died from laughing so hard. I could picture the pauses with each comma. Of course, it didn't help -- or is that hurt? -- that I could also hear Walken's and Shatner's voices in my head as I was reading their panels.

I suppose this graphic, while hilarious, just illustrates the point of choosing your comma style and being consistent in its usage.

Winter Break 2014

Happy Holidays, grammar mavens and aficionados. As is usual at this time of year, fandom_grammar will be closing shop for the holidays. We'll be back in the new year to continue answering your grammar questions.

Also, if you have an over-abundance of grammar and writing knowledge, we'll be looking to add to our writing staff in 2015. Keep an eye out for when applications are open in January/February.

In the meantime, if you have a grammar question, please go to the Ask a Question post. Even though we're taking a break, we're still taking your questions.

May the Grammar be with you!
