“My Greek yogurt is expired. Does this make it Ancient Greek yogurt now?”

Does expired Greek yogurt acquire more culture and become Ancient Greek yogurt?

Wikipedia: Strained yogurt
Strained yogurt, Greek yogurt, yogurt cheese, sack yoghurt, or kerned yogurt is yogurt that has been strained to remove most of its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency than unstrained yogurt, while preserving yogurt’s distinctive sour taste. Like many types of yogurt, strained yogurt is often made from milk that has been enriched by boiling off some of its water content, or by adding extra butterfat and powdered milk. In Europe and North America, it is often made from low-fat or fat-free milk. In Iceland, a similar product named skyr is made.

Strained yogurt is generally marketed in North America as “Greek yogurt” and in Britain as “Greek-style yoghurt”, though strained yogurt is also widely eaten in Levantine, Eastern Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Central Asian and South Asian cuisines, wherein it is often used in cooking (as it is high enough in fat content to avoid curdling at higher temperatures).

So I ate an expired cup of Greek yogurt today. I guess it should have been called Ancient Greek yogurt. (pause for laugher)
