Happy Twenty-oh-three! « The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith

Happy Twenty-oh-three!

Friday, January 3rd, 2003 - 11:40 am PST

It’s three days into the new year, and Rev. Smith remains resolute in his stance that this year should be pronounced not as “Two Thousand Three” as is the common custom, but rather as “Twenty-oh-Three”, which, he argues, is in keeping with previous centuries in which dates like 1903 or 1203 would pronounced “Nineteen-oh-Three” or “Twelve-oh-Three”. “Who ever came up with this ‘The Year Two Thousand’ crap anyhow?” asked a visibly perturbed Smith. “Three years ago was the start of ‘Twenty-Hundred’, dammit.”
