Misc. Comments

  • The text in this piece is the simple phrase "Happy birthday to you", with plenty of interpolated consonants. It is not the complete text allegedly authored by Patty Smith Hill (1868-1946) used in the notorious example of the absolute insanity of US copyright law: Happy Birthday to You.
