I posted a video for Weird Al’s Word Crimes video about two weeks ago and blathered on about the Oxford comma. Here’s a simple explanation of what the Oxford comma is, but not why I believe it’s sometimes useful.

When I ran across this image on Facebook, I died laughing because sometimes I write like Walken is speaking, adding commas for the speech pauses in my head. I hate editing them out, but I don’t stop myself. Sometimes it causes me to restructure a sentence based on natural pauses in a certain character’s speech patterns.
