Comma on people!

Regarding the Oxford comma, consider the story of the Christian rock singer accepting an entertainment award. "I want to thank my parents, Jesus and Lady Gaga."

Anyone who omits the final comma in a series runs a high risk of ambiguity and a non-trivial risk of sounding really stupid.
