If people keep calling this new year two thousand and ten I will lose my mind. It will just melt out of my ears.
We didn’t say nineteen thousand and ninety nine did we? No, we partied like it was nineteen-ninety nine. Yeah it was 19-99, damn it.
It is now twenty-ten … 20-10. Not two thousand and ten…
We had ten years of this nonsense â€” a decade of unnecessary words. It ends now â€” at least for me.
Happy 2010 everyone.
Gawker great debate: How Should We Pronounce 2010?
Great link and the twenty-ten people seem vastly more sensible!
