Actual conversation at our house:
K – I just wrote a course description for my elective.
M – Really? I want to read it. [reads] Are you going to teach impressionable children your irrational hatred of the oxford comma?
K – Of course, they have to learn to be real journalists. Journalists don’t use oxford commas.
M – But print is dead!
