Who gives a **** about an Oxford Coma? Not this guy

both of these sentences are incorrect for what they are displaying
the 1st
"we invited the strippers,JFK and Stalin"
this is correct if you mean that you invited some strippers as well as JFK and Stalin

the 2nd
" we invited the strippers; JFK and Stalin"
this implies you invited 2 strippers called JFK and Stalin

That is incorrect. You can only use a semicolon to connect two sentences that would be full sentences on their own. It's used in place of other conjunctions, like 'and' or 'but'.

im no English scholar but im about 95% certain the second part should be
"Without the oxford coma:
we invented strippers; jfk and stalin"

I don't think it's correct to believe we "invented" strippers, JFK and Stalin.

It really is a good idea do use that. A lot of people think it looks stupid, but things sound like there should be a comma there when it's spoken.

The second one should be using a semi-colon.
We invited the strippers; JFK and Stalin.
User avatar #55 to #51 - zigzagderpaderp (08/20/2012) [-]
Nope, you gotta use a colon. Semi-colons are use to separate independent clauses that are in the same sentence (e.g. "The dog went to sleep, and he woke up an hour later." can be written as "The dog went to sleep; he woke up an hour later."). Colons are used to start a list (e.g. "I have three sisters: Daphne, Rose, and Suzanne.")

My sophomore English teacher taught me well :3

Took me way too long to figure that out, never been so insecure of my intelligence D:
User avatar #8 - dakkenly (08/19/2012) [-]
If the words "Strippers, JFK, and Stalin" were all proper nouns, then strippers wouldn't be an adjective. That or you can just not put strippers first because it's ambiguous
