i do not think that this is the intended behavior but rather a "bug"
in the implementation thus you change the API by hardcoding the bug in
it and would need to bump the respective versions but i wont accept that

using the current date in case a string cannot be parsed is a very odd
way to handle an error

of things you dont want and which you would get tomorrow for free anyway
