Feliz Cumpleaños, Mr. Deadman! Notice the use of the ‘ñ,’ ‘cause cumple-anos sounds and looks downright unpleasant.

Back in 1992 when QE II referred to the year as the "annus horribilis", our local so-called newspaper spelled it with one 'n'.  This same paper abbreviated Department of National Defense as "D and D" (DND, get it?).

Sad, really.
