Keep Calm

This poster, Keep Calm and Carry On, was designed by a British civil servant as part of a World War II propaganda campaign in Great Britain.  The third in a series of such posters, the Keep Calm and Carry On poster was to be used in the case of an invasion of Great Britain by Germany.  Since this never occurred, the poster was never officially disseminated.


This pink parody was brought to my attention by my son and I thought it was rather cute and deserved not only a blog post, but a bit of an historical explanation of its origins.

I suppose you could say it is an American version of the original!

Enjoy!

I need a sign that says, "Keep calm and walk away from the cupcake." LOL

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
