I came across this phrase today in a rather humorous column:
The last time I did [something] ... was 2000-never.
I've never seen this construct before. My guess is, that this means, the author did something the last time before the year 2000. Is that correct? Could I get some more examples?
Here is the phrase in context, to help give a better idea of how it's being used:
For example, ordering anything on the internet and paying more than the cost of the item in shipping fees is pretty depressing. As a general rule, that puts a halt to my eCommerce experience before I press the "checkout" button. The last time I paid $15 for a great t-shirt and paid $16 to ship it was 2000-never.
The author seems to have a very good command of the English language, so now I'm wondering how prevalent this expression might be.
