nofatchicks: Good on the comma, but where's your apostrophe?

actually, the correct form of the second sentence should be "we invited the strippers: jfk and stalin.

@OldOllie

The MLA Handbook allows for the exclusion of an Oxford comma. But yes, the associated press does break too many rules of the English language in the name of simplicity.

@Lawviz:

Uncle should also be capitalized as its his name, Uncle Jack. It's the same as mister and Mister, one refers to the title while the former refers to a improper noun

@sabio

or that sentence could also be corrected with commas instead of capitalization:

I helped my uncle, Jack, off the horse.

I stopped using the Oxford comma because it seems the plebeians prefer their statements ambiguous.

Why would you have the comma after strippers if you were talking about the strippers jfk and stalin?

Strange, I've been taught in school that a comma never should precede an "and".

I have but one comma on my keyboard.

If you can't read between the lines then I don't want to be talking to you anyways.

With capitals, I can help my uncle Jack off the horse. Without capitals, I can help my uncle jack off the horse.

In this case it's acting as more than an oxford comma and is ambiguous. Clever though.

This is simply writing what we say, whatever you want to call it. It's not complicated. Do you say "Red, white and blue flags," implying red ones and white and blue ones, or "Red, white, and blue flags," implying three colors? Listen to the language and you'd write it this way without even thinking.

I'm a total grammar nazi and this still took me a while to figure out.
