Through a bizarre disaster (nothing unusual for our boy blunder), Wally accidentally fries the circuits of Ol' Betsy, his laptop computer. Suddenly, whatever Wally types turns into reality…including his 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 year, thanks to our beloved Wally.
