You probably won't find this as funny as I did

This morning I received a two-sentence email from my friend/colleague at an organization across town regarding a document that we had both edited.

"Damn you and your commas! I took every one of those serial commas out and you sent it back with every single one put back in."

Ah, the inherent tensions between an editor (WOOOO Chicago Style!) and a publicist (booo AP Style).
