Suddenly, whatever he types turns into reality. . . Including Wally becoming the city's Chief of Police, and finally the Governor of the state. It's 11: 59, New Year's Eve, when our hero tries retyping the truth into his computer - a commendable effort which, unfortunately, manages to short out every computer in the world By midnight, the entire universe has credited Wally's mishap to the MILLENNIUM BUG Panic, chaos and hilarity start the new century, thanks to our beloved Wally.
