Serial comma

I got a chuckle out of this punctuation article.

"The standard example of how confusion can result from the absence of a serial comma is the book dedication (probably fictional): 'To my parents, Ayn Rand and God'. A comma before the 'and' would rule out the unlikely possibility that the writer's parents are Ayn Rand and God."

Thank God for commas.
