Here's a punctuation question:

What is your opinion on the "oxford" comma? What is the "oxford" comma? Examine the following sentence:

Mr. Smith likes peanuts, popcorn, and chocolate koalas.
Mr. Smith likes peanuts, popcorn and chocolate koalas.

Notice the comma or lack of one. When there is a comma before the "and", that is called, by some, and "oxford" comma. Which do people prefer and why? Anyone have strong opinions which is the "more correct" version? Is there a "more correct" version?

Who knew reading about commas could be so damn fun. :shock: I'm half serious! :smt077
