English people don’t know what Americans mean when they ask for an ‘English muffin’, and the French are equally bemused by the concept of ‘French toast’. What then of the ‘Oxford comma’? I hadn’t heard of the expression until I listened to Vampire Weekend’s debut (2008) album, whose delightfully catchy second track is named after it and begins: “Who gives a **** about an Oxford comma?”

Nevertheless, I found this amusing explanation on Imgur this morning:

By the way, check out the video for Oxford Comma, which was directed in a single, four-minute, tracking take by Richard Aoyade. It’s here on Youtube, and just might make your day seem a bit brighter.
