“An Oxford comma walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” An Oxford comma version is:

“An Oxford comma walks into a bar. Orders a gin, and tonic.”

The joke was posted on Twitter on July 30, 2013 by NeinQuarterly.

“An Oxford comma walks into a bar. It sits, drinks, and leaves”—the Oxford comma joke with a different punchline—was posted on Twitter on January 19, 2013.


Wikipedia: Serial comma
In English language punctuation, a serial comma or series comma (also called Oxford comma and Harvard comma) is a comma placed immediately before the coordinating conjunction (usually and or or) in a series of three or more terms. For example, a list of three countries might be punctuated either as “France, Italy, and Spain” (with the serial comma), or as “France, Italy and Spain” (without the serial comma).

An Oxford comma walks into a bar, orders a gin and tonic and ponders the need for existence in a world of unambiguous sentence construction.
