i say screw two thousand and ten. twenty mo foing ten dog. Twenty ten!!!
“mo foing ten dog” to you, too.
I intend to refer to this as the year “zoio,” pronouned to rhyme with “boyo” as in “It’s January 1st, zoio, me boyo.”
Whatever has the fewest number of syllables.
For some reason, two thousand ten sounds groovier to me. Once we hit the teens the “twenty” usage sounds okay.
I don’t know why.
I agree with the OP, I’ve been waiting to call the years this century “twenty-something” for some time now, this is the best place to start.
And, Chicken Fingers, as far as I’m concerned, this is the teens, that’s the name for this decade (2010-2019). Another reason to start using it.
You can bet, ten years from now, no matter what construct people have been using previous (“two thousand [and] …” or "twenty … "), the “twenty” construct will have a lot more followers, because having the year be “twenty twenty” in my mind is the epitome of cool.
I’m just going to say “ten” and let everyone else figure out what I’m talking about.
Eh. I have decided to hate the phrase twenty ten. Long live two thousand ten!
two zero one zero
(i am kidding)
The new decade doesn’t start for another year.
Charles Osgood has doggedly been pronouncing the years of the past decade “twenty-oh-___” but I think now he will have more company with the advent of twenty-ten.
How about two-aught-ten?
