One advertising agency’s heroic attempt to rid the Internet of an overwhelming number of errors that are as likely signifying the end of days as anything else—say, that sandwich from Kentucky Fried Chicken that uses two pieces of chicken instead of rolls, or the failure of certain adolescents to wear belts causing their oversized jeans to reveal an excessive proportion of their designer boxer shorts or Lady Gaga.
