The Oxford Comma: Absolutely Vital Bit of Punctuation!

From linguaphiles...

WITH THE OXFORD COMMA: We invited the strippers, JFK, and Stalin. WITHOUT THE OXFORD COMMA: We invited the strippers, JFK and Stalin.

Remember this, when any misguided editor tries to delete your Oxford comma, and smack them for it.
