Default Keep Calm and _____ On

Let me start off by saying I love the original posters and the story behind them. Also, generally speaking I'm a big fan of memes and the like.

But this one, has gotten so, SO out of control. It can be found on absolutely EVERYTHING NOW.

At this point, it doesn't matter, no matter what version of it I see I just roll my eyes. It's not funny anymore, it's just saturated, played out and boring.

Maybe there's some people who do still like it, I don't know, but I've really about reached my limit.

The history of it is amazing.

The memes that have come as a result are not. It's drastically overdone, none of them are funny anymore. It's just become stupid at this point.

Agreed. A lot of them don't even make a lick of sense.

Mom does have a "keep calm and knit on" sticker cuz it reminds her of "I knit so I don't kill people" (without the violent connotations according to her).

Now I'm picturing some sort of fantasy/Dungeons & Dragons variant used as advertising:

"Keep calm at Calm Keep! Just 19 gp a day!"
