Sunday Funday: Remembering Edition

One of the pleasures of doing the quiz is to add the frills. Often, like this week, that means a new Randy Rainbow satire. Without further delay, take it away Mr. Rainbow!

Memorial Day for decades and decades has meant 2 things. First is the Indy 500. Second is opening of the public pools. This year we get neither. The Indy race is scheduled to run on August 23rd.
