@oh3nwq: Month, Day and Year is not *funny*. It is the way Americans express our dates mostly. It seems logical to me. What month are you talking about then what day of that month and then what year you are in? Can you explain why others think this is funny?
I wouldn't have said that it was 'funny' - surely by now everyone knows that that is the way Americans do dates.
As for logical...no, not really. I'm sure it seems normal and convenient to you, because it's the way it's always been, but it's not actually logical. Day/Month/Year has a logical progression from small unit of time through medium unit to large unit.
Year/Month/Day would be equally logical, although not as convenient. Digital time, for example, is written that way (large unit = hour/medium unit = minute/small unit = second/even smaller unit = tenths of second)
