A semicolon is not a surgical procedure, and an ellipsis is not a celestial event. National Punctuation Day celebrates these facts and many more, honoring everything from the lowly comma to the fanciful ampersand. These punctuation-themed t-shirts celebrate punctuation marks too!
Punctuation helps us make sense of our written language. Most grammar rules are fairly straightforward, but there is one hotly contested debate: the series comma (aka serial comma, Oxford comma, or just plain “the comma before the ‘and’ in a series), use of which is supported by every style manual including the Chicago Manual of Style … except the style manual used by journalists. Vote on this critical issue by choosing which t-shirt supports your choice: serial comma, or no serial comma?

I’ll see you in a funny t-shirt!
