A light-hearted lesson on the Oxford comma

Today is filled with tasks related to my day job — AGAIN. So I’m sharing a quick (and dirty) punctuation lesson in honor of my friend, Charles White.  Chas and I are both nerdy enough to be fans of the Oxford comma. The illustration is a slightly edited version of the original by Jeff Bishop. (I’m trying to keep this blog PG rated.)

Here’s another illustration.



  1. Too bad ALL the other European languages have no Oxford (comma). Not one. As a translation editor, I find it shocking how many translators mutely obey Russian or Romanian comma rules while trying to produce American English!

  2. We stumbled over here coming from a different website and thought
    I might check things out. I like what I see so i am just
    following you. Look forward to looking over your web page again.

  3. I read a lot of interesting posts here. Probably you spend a lot of time writing,
    i know how to save you a lot of work, there is an online tool that creates unique, google friendly
    posts in seconds, just search in google – laranitas free
