It really bugged me the first time I heard "Twenty Ten" on the radio. That number is two-thousand-and-ten, people. You can't break it down that way. Just like you can't say "two point forty six". Those two numbers to the right of the decimal have to be read separately! We learned that in school!

But then... I read this. And then this argument in the comments:

Given that we say "seventeen seventy-six," "eighteen twenty" and "nineteen ninety-nine," it seems only natural to say "twenty ten."

Doh! Can't argue with that logic.
