The OLM Quiz – Mayday!



Mayday!

I'd like to wish you and yours, regardless of your background or political affiliation, a happy May Day.


Perhaps the term "May Day" evokes the Cold War era ritual of huge parades with soldiers in lockstep, or it might bring to mind the struggles of the union movement to reach some kind of legitimacy in the early 20th century, here in the U.S. and abroad. Or it might bring to mind old war movies where pilots screamed the phrase into their radios (the story goes that this became an official distress call as a French translation for "M'aider," literally "Help Me"). Regardless, and this metaphor suddenly feels strained, but regardless, it's about people working hard and looking for some recognition for what they've done. May you get some much-deserved recognition for all the work you do this month, and may this quiz be a very tiny reward for all that.


How this introduction became a beer commercial, I'll never know. But enjoy the quiz.
