Keep Calm and...


By now, EVERYONE knows this saying.. Keep Calm and Carry On.  But do any of you know the meaning behind it?

I was curious one day and of course, googled it.  

According to Wikipedia:
This saying was put on a poster by the British government during World War II.  This was distributed in 1939.  
Can you believe it?  
In 2000, it was rediscovered and became popular for different products and companies.  Now, it is known for it's decorative purposes and as a fun saying with interchangeable references.
I'm pretty sure I like the saying even more now.  And for kicks, I want to show you some of my fave's out there!!

Keep Calm and Love

I love the play on the original poster, especially the Batman one and love on a nerd.
