I'm sure it was - and a successful jest.  But mine was not.  In that case, 
context made the date's form redundant, but it _is_ a problem.  Not  major 
one, a very minor one.  But a problem - and one with a very easy solution.  I 
prefer the 11-04-01 (or 2011-04-01) solution to the one I myself offered, 
because month names in a foreign language (and for many here English is a 
foreign language), whilst certainly unambiguous, may be confusing.
