Grammar Giggles – Oxford Comma

Today was a hectic day.  Instead of a full post, I’ll leave you with some grammar giggles.  Gotta love a well-used oxford comma.  Tune in tomorrow for a look at why writing that first scene can be as horrifying and exhilarating as a first date.

  2. The teacher brave enough to use this in a class room will not only have;
    1. A class full of pupils who will forever comprehend the Oxford Comma
    and
    2. A law suit filed against them

    • So true. If my high school english teacher would have pulled this one out, we would have never forgotten the purpose of an Oxford Comma. She got “moved to another school” for being too controversial, so this cartoon would have been right up her alley. She was one of the best English teachers I ever had!

  3. A positive grammar point – I’ve passed this own to a designer to explain this concept to his clients. Thanks.
