I was joking at the funny way of giving a date. I am quite used to it, but
not enough to resist having a laugh. It gets confusing when the first and
secodn digit are 12 or less, because you need to know if it is American or
British to know what date is being spoken about ... as long as they aren't
the same!
The only time I can cope with the M/D/Y system is on Star Wars day, you
know, the one when we give a greeting:
May the fourth be with you!
