In the year A.D. 200, a good year was beginning...

I got an e-mail from a friend wishing me a happy new year. However there was a typo.

It said: "それでは、200年がイサクさんにとって良い年になりますように"

Or in English: "I hope the year 200 will be a good year for you, Isaque."

The "200年" bit means "the year 200". It probably was supposed to be "2008年".

Since I'm terrible, I decided to pick on it and even go as far as to make a comic derived from it.

"Around the year 200...."
"It seems like this year will be a good year."
"Oh yeah, you're right."
