Our hill to die on

MB: Did you see that email I sent you about the Oxford comma?

vbg: No, I haven't opened it yet.

MB: I need to state for the record that I am in favor of the Oxford comma.

vbg: Good. Then I don't have to disown you.

MB: Just to clarify, I'm talking about the comma that directly precedes "and."

vbg: Yes, the comma that is required to be there.

MB: See? We're meant for each other.

  1. all couples should be on the same side of the Oxford Comma. this poster is very effective in proving why it can be necessary. but i've been so indoctrinated against it, i'd save it only for cases like that. i hope my husband would agree...
