How should I understand "cornless feet" in the sentence below?
Thanks in advance.
The economist Stuart Chase observed in 1925 that advertising “creates a dream world: smiling faces, shining teeth, school girl complexions, cornless feet, perfect fitting union suits, distinguished collars, wrinkleless pants, odorless breath, regularized bowels (and) happy homes in New Jersey — 15 minutes from Hoboken.”
Some people have problems with their feet with things called corns. The author puts it on the list of things that do NOT exist in the perfect world depicted in advertisements.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
