Comma Joke

Funny Reminders Ecard: I like cooking my family and pets. Use commas. Don't be a psycho. height=294

This could be used in a reading or writing class to talk about comma usage. It might be a fun way to introduce the topic. :)

All jokes aside though, this could be used in class as well!

You start by showing the students this image and explain the joke to them. Once they understand the joke, you could expand upon this and ask the students to come up with an example of how the oxford comma can completely change the meaning of a sentence.

The students can draw pictures to accompany of their sentences if they want, to add a little more humor to it.
