This Is Why One Should Just Accept the Oxford Comma

serialCommaUsually, of course, grammar disputes just result in grumpy people getting their knickers in a twist over something unimportant, but from the Onion comes this story of the true tragedy that can result when these sorts of disagreements get out of hand.

So, clearly, everyone should just settle down and not get worked up over grammar.  Except about the Oxford comma, of course – that’s important, as my parents, Ayn Rand and God will attest.
