    I had to look at this about four times before I ‘got’ it and I’m not slow! I never knew that was called an Oxford comma, I thought it was just proper grammar! And aren’t Oxfords supposed to be shoes?

    I like the fact that people care deeply enough about punctuation to post about it but am on the fence about the Oxford comma. Agree at times it helps clarify meaning but at others, like your example, it strikes me as redundant. It would take a twisted mind to imagine the toast being combined with the OJ; on the other hand, the use of the comma makes the ‘and’ seem unnecessary.
