The Zins is the destined name for the decade comprised of the years 2000 through 2009. The name is derived from the long form 'The Two Thousands', which could be pronounced in a more modern dialect as 'The Two Thouzins', and then shortened to the ever infectious 'The Zins'. When compared to other popular names 'The Aughts' and 'The O-O's' in a slides-off-the-tounge competition, there's really no contest.
"Man, the zins where a cruddy decade for pop culture!"
"I can't wait for the zins to be over so we can get Will Smith back."
