Subject: Pronunciation for the 00s - I know what to call it now

Written By: ChuckyG on 06/02/09 at 12:30 pm

yeah. we've covered the topic a dozen times already... but I think I know what I want to call it now

The ooze... as in "knee deep in the ooze" 

Think of all the messes that came up in the past then years, 9/11, the Iraq & Afghanistan war, real estate collapse, the popularity of reality TV, etc.

Ooze tends to mean something messy, and I can't think of a messier decade.

Granted it doesn't have that "-ties" style suffix the other decades seem to have, but I don't think it needs to.

The oose are 'o' which is a letter of the alphabet.

What is required here is 00's, that is '0' as in a numerical digt, so 00's should read as zeroes or noughts.
