Keep Calm And Carry On

It's probably just me....
But...
I'm starting to think...
That this Keep Calm And Carry On thing has been a bit overdone.

Onward. Keeping ever so calm. And carrying on like a _______________.

Conversely: "Now panic and freak out"
I agree with you. I don't know where along the lines the WWII British War slogan became such a widely used phrase. It has been used in fashion, decor, jewelry, etc...Kind of sick of it really.
Those cuff links are kind of snappy though, no?

For a second there I honestly read that last pic as a gaggle of "Keep Calm and Carry on" condoms. Not joking.

Yeah, and if it wasn't for us they'd be keeping calm and speaking German...

(Just channeling my elders...)

Yes, I am afraid the masses have totally exploited such a wonderful quote.

I'm with Pre101. You're killin' us.

Hell. You warned us. You said you were needing a break. But truth? The miniscule shots that you have left these last few days are .....NO...I won't say brilliant....I will say strategic. I know what you do for a living and you are a master at it. So. You have figured out a way to escape for awhile and keep the wolves baying. This is what you goaled. So without hurting any feelings you are posting coy and quick amusing blurbs. Pacing. You don't fool me. You will be back when you are settled with your newest distraction.
We're all still waitin' for the panty blog and I want to know what happened to the cigar box.

Just kidding, Pilgrim. Sleep tight in those BB flannels that haven"t been laundered for two weeks!!!

AnonPilgrim...you are a liar. I washed my BB flannels yesterday before I hit the road. So there.

Yes, It's definitely time to bring it to a higher level and, in the immortal words of the New Riders of the Purple Sage, "Keep on Keeping on".

Those Keep Calm signs are available in lime. I can't tell you how many friends have sent me the link for the lime sign but I've not broken down to order it. However, whenever I read "Keep Calm and Carry On", it is in the "Mind the Gap" voice of the London Tube.

Strangely, I feel a bit smug in that I procured KC&CO posters (the real deal) many years ago...long before they were cheap.

Seriously, all the better that way.

I agree, this one as been ground to a messy pulp.

Or "Keep on truckin'!". Panic is such a fun word. I love that we cerebral primates can use vocal cords to make sounds describing such an animalistic response as panic, and then the not so animalistic response to "keep calm". Such an interesting species...

Yep, even though I have a framed print in our basement, it's been a tad overdone.

The Devoted Classicist said...

Agreed. The cufflinks are the last straw. Let's do carry on -- to something else.

That is so strange - we have a "Keep Calm" poster in our kitchen, dating from the birth of our children. It was a humorous note amid the chaos of babies. Just today, I looked at it, felt 'over it' and took it down. Then I saw your post; glad to know I am not the only one.
