I liked this teaser (mostly because I like teasers I can't answer) and gave it a high rating.

But someone UNconfuse me. Your teaser asked for "year" and your answer gave "number".

Thanks for the comment Badbunnee02. Sorry about the tricky wording of this teaser but in this case I wanted this teaser to be tricky which is why I picked numbers that were also recent years. Plus most people use numbers to identify different years so the year is also a number. This might not work in China where they have animal names for the years (e.g. the year of the horse, dog, dragon, etc.) but even then I think they also use the Gregorian calendar and number years the same way we do.
