Oh, comma before “and” in a list

At you, some writers shake their fist

But thou deserve an appreciative golf clap.

Though use is completely optional

You’re useful in a grammar arsenal

For changing the meaning of a sentence in a snap.

Make this strange, two-person detour:

        Doug found himself on a private jet with his father-in-law, a bike courier and a            cat acupuncturist.

Into a madcap, four-person adventure:

       Doug found himself on a private jet with his father-in-law, a bike courier, and a           cat acupuncturist.

For such clarity, we hereby doff our caps.

Have a grammatically unambiguous weekend, everybody!
