The Oxford comma, such a controversial little punctuation mark. Why do people hate you so much? You’re very important. You help avoid awkward situations.
I love my two sons, baseball and TV.
I’d like you to meet my parents, Justin Bieber and Carrot Top.
I really like to eat sandwiches, octopus and chocolate.
I’d like to thank my sisters, Kanye West and Bob Saget.
I couldn’t have graduated high school without the help of my teachers, my dog and Robin Williams.
I went golfing with my dad, a sumo wrestler and a drag queen.
I had dinner with the Harlem Globetrotter members, Colin Mochrie and Lady Gaga.
So please, use the Oxford comma, so that I don’t have sons named baseball and TV. So that my parents are not Justin Bieber and Carrot Top. So that I’m not eating octopus and chocolate sandwiches. So that Kanye West and Bob Saget haven’t had a sex change so that they’re my sisters. So that my dog and Robin Williams weren’t my teachers. So that my dad isn’t a sumo wrestler and drag queen. So that Colin Mochrie and Lady Gaga didn’t join the Harlem Globetrotters. It’s just awkward.
