the calm

Can we start a discussion about those “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters?  They bug the bejesus out of me.  They’re so British.  And they’re so EVERYWHERE.  Mugs, t-shirts, key-chains, rugs.  Toilet paper, probably.  KEEP CALM – CARRY ON CRAPPING.

So, I found a nice alternative, above.  The pink circle looks like a womb.  Or the top of someone’s bald head.  An egg, maybe?  And the font is a wee bit creepy.  As in, “Be Calm.  Because this gigantic pink egg/womb is coming to get you.”  

Anyway, if you need a daily visual reminder to calm the fuck down, please choose the poster less posted.  It’s from MOCA’s Louis Bourgeois exhibit, and available here.
