Oakhurst Dairy drivers sued the company, focusing on the lack of a comma after the word "shipment" in the following sentence from Maine's overtime law:
The canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment or distribution of:
(1) Agricultural produce;(2) Meat and fish products; and(3) Perishable foods.
I love my parents, Spiderman, and Wonder Woman.
If you had not included the Oxford comma, the sentence could be interpreted as stating that you love your parents, and your parents are Spiderman and Wonder Woman:
I love my parents, Spiderman and Wonder Woman.
If you are an Oxford comma believer and are writing for a client who is not, consider rewriting the sentence:
I love Spiderman, Wonder Woman and my parents.
