Does "Me too" have a comma between the "me" and the "too"?

I don't know... I always say "Me, too" but my friend recently told me there's not supposed to be a comma, and I didn't want to be proven wrong so I just said okay... now I'm wondering if there should be a comma there! :S

    This answer appears on "The Grammarphobia Blog." It argues that the relationship between the comma and too is a stylistic, rather than a purely grammatical, one.

    <<A comma, too?

    A: In the universe of yeses and noes, this is a maybe [referring to a question about whether to use a comma before too] (which explains why two intelligent people can disagree about it). There's no grammatical rule that says you must use a comma with "too" in the kind of sentence you describe. It's largely optional, and depends on the inflection the writer intends. In the case of "too," use a comma if you intend to emphasize a pause.

    Take your example: "Steve likes chocolate ice cream too." Context might call for a comma or it might not. If Grandma has just given Steve's pushy little brother Sam a scoop of ice cream, and their mother wants to suggest that shy little Steve should get the same, she might say, "Steve likes chocolate ice cream, too." (With a little lilt at the end, emphasizing the "too.")

    But if Mom is just describing a catalog of the stuff that Steve likes, and has already mentioned, say, vanilla ice cream, she might say, "Steve likes chocolate ice cream too." (No particular inflection there.) It's often a judgment call.">>

    No there isnt a comma in between them... by using the word Too... You are saying "Me also"... think of a comma as a slight break in between sentences, then think about how you would say Me too with a break in between, doesnt really work

    No. You only need a comma between adjectives when there are three or more.

    There is no comma. Your friends were correct. Asking questions is a sign of inteligence. Never stop asking questions.

    No, but it's easier to remember when it's exclamatory. "Me too!" That's easy to remember.

    Sorry if I sound mean or something....
