My war on the Oxford comma

I started editing Find His Way Home today (since my fabulous beta was faster than lightning and finished in a day!!)

Editing resulted inย some a lot of cussing and this tweet:

My poor beta always has to add all the Oxford commas (and then some), since the rules for how to use commas in Swedish and English are very different.

(In Swedish the “and” replaces the need for a comma, we don’t use both. And spare me the funny memes, I’ve argued against them until I was blue in the face. It doesn’t work that way in Swedish ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Anyway. After I was done unloading my frustration on Twitter, I continued working.

Until I stumbled uponย this comment, making me laugh out loud:
