    You are right. In fact the only possible motto that could be used on this theme is

    “Keep Calm and Just Burn This Embarassingly Outdated T-Shirt”

    I think wanting to put a meme on a t-shirt is embarassing regardless of what it is or how long it’s been around.

    I bloody hope so.  I find it offensive.

    I own a shirt that was made as a take on that phrase from March…and even then I thought it was outdated…

    @cbgg:  Because the meme trivializes it.

    My former company’s CEO was sure that her flock of 20-something employees (child care center) would REALLY LOVE oversize unisex polos as a Christmas gift.

    And we were all thinking “Please stop giving us crappy clothing and tote bags. We could use raises or gas cards.” But we said “Thank you, Omnipotent Boss Lady!”

    So I’d probably go along with the CEO’s idea.

    I hope to God it’s over.  It always made me think of Freudian theories of female hysteria.  No, sir, I will NOT keep calm. Thank you.

    I hope it’s over. I always hated that meme. It’s been so commercialized and trivialized beyond it’s original meaning and purpose.
