Here is a cute TED ED animation sent in by Don, an active member of the Peanut Gallery in Houston.
It’s about the Oxford comma, also called the Harvard comma or the serial comma.

At Occidental Petroleum, our style is to use the Oxford comma. Why? Because commas save lives.

Example:
Let’s eat Grandma.
Let’s eat, Grandma.

Profound Quote of the Day:

“Attention is the most precious nonrenewable resource.
Don’t ask for attention until you are ready to give value first.
Asking for someone’s attention comes with an obligation to deliver, to inform and enlighten.”
– Sally Hogshead, author of FASCINATE: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation
