Keep Calm and . . .

Have you seen all of the “Keep Calm” signs on the internet, lately?

They’re usually pretty amusing (Keep Calm and Eat a Cookie),

and sometimes quite inspiring (Keep Calm and Count Your Blessings).


I did a little research and discovered that the original slogan (the one you see below) was on a poster created by the British government in the early days of World War II. It was part of series of three that were intended to raise the morale of the British people in the event of invasion. Full story here.

More recently (in 2000), a copy of a “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster turned up in a 2nd-hand book store in the UK. Because it was in the public domain by that time, the owners of the bookshop began to print copies at customers’ requests.


Since then, the pithy saying has taken fire! It seems everyone is having a ball thinking of different versions.

I have a few prepared but I thought it would be fun to have your suggestions! I’ll make little “blog posters” and show them here from time to time (with credit to you!). 🙂

So what would you say?

“Keep Calm and ________”?
