    $\begingroup$ @user253751 Actually, what I should have written is that rot13("pbivq-19" vf fubeg sbe "pbebanivehf qvfrnfr 2019"). That would have been the complete answer. But my main point was that the words in the solution (rot13("vf eneryl jevggra nf pbebanivehf (shyy jbeqf)") are incorrect. $\endgroup$ – Lanny Strack Mar 16 at 0:49
