Erm, isn't it more usual to celebrate 75th anniversaries rather than 77ths?

Lovely art, though...

So I guess "Happy 81st Anniversary!" wouldn't go over too well, either?

Next year will be the 80th Anniversary for the first appearance of Batman in Detective Comics!

I don't think 81 is really considered to be a significant number.

But it is 9². Wink

And is "69" a significant number?

I think it kind of has to be multiples of ten, really.

We only think multiples of ten are significant because we count in base ten, because we have ten fingers. It's a very bigoted, human-centric way of thinking Razz

But I knew a guy back in college who only had nine fingers!

. . . the "incident" involved one of those really tall windows that you might find in places like old college classrooms and such (back in the last century) . . .
