If 99.9% were acceptable...

I was shooting a sketch in an office complex last weekend, and there was a hand drawn poster hanging up outside the break room that said the following:

If 99.9% were acceptable...
• 1128 babies each day would be given to the wrong parents
• 124 flights out of O'Hare would crash every year
• 3168 words in Webster's Dictionary would be mispelled (sic)

those aren't the real numbers, but you get the idea. Sigh. Oh, corporate America. I had an idea for a rebuttal poster:

If 99.9% wasn't acceptable...
• Zero of the people in this office would have graduated high school.

A bit presumptuous on my part? Maybe, but I stand behind it nonetheless.
