Well, I liked the old Oxford Comma debate more, but you’ve never met my family.
As a zombie I wonder what you are even objecting to.

Grammar Cop here. Our motto is “To Correct and Serve.”
Today’s lesson – Don’t use commas, that aren’t necessary, and the same goes for apostrophe’s.
Oh, like that old panda joke?
Panda walks into a restaurant, orders a plate of noodles and bamboo. Waiter brings him his food and he eats it. When done, he gets up, pulls his pistol out, shoots the waiter and strolls away. Another patron runs after the panda and asks him “What the heck, dude? Why did you do that?” The panda simply hands him a wildlife pamphlet which has an entry for:
“Pandas, Diet: Eats, shoots, and leaves”

My wife used to be a secretary for someone who constantly, and I mean “CONSTANTLY” used greengrocer’s quotes. Drove Mrs BDR “nutz”.

I never even heard of greengrocer’s quotes until Sir Terry introduced them in one of his books.
I can see how that sort of thing would tempt you to enter the Farmers’ Mark’et equipped with a heavy duty magic marker.
There used to be a diner in Cleveland, Lil’s place. The sign hanging out front said,
Lil’s Place. Good “Food”
Never ate there. Too scared.
That is strangely hilarious. Also appropriate for Hallowe’en.
I am most def Team Oxford Comma:

I am forced to believe that ‘Grain’s family is delicious. Prove me wrong.
“Naw, we are the Charlie the Lonesome Tunas of the hoominkind,” ‘Grain says nervously.
Seriously, I don’t even bite my nails.
I figure the ‘Grain family is prime for malting, brewing(,) and fermenting. Just have to track down the Hop Family to complete the deal.
