Howard Parsons (howardparsons) | 234 comments According to Wikipaedia . . .

Keep Calm and Carry On was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 several months before the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the aftermath of widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities. It had only limited distribution with no public display, and thus was little known. It was rediscovered in 2000, has been re-issued by a number of private companies, and has been used as the decorative theme for a range of products. . . .

There have been untold knock-offs since the poster was rediscovered. Some of them have been quite clever; others, not so much.

S.K.'s version advises us to Keep Calm & Read The Marked Ones. It is virtually impossible to keep calm whilst reading The Marked Ones!

There's a professional mermaid in Florida who was in a bad boating accident and could use your support.

There's a link to a site that generates them, by the look of it so you can personalise anything.
And CALM? With 4 days to go? Not happening!

I was watching a show on tv the other night about hump back whales and I said to my hubby "oh look at their flukes" and he was like... What? I said the end of their tales and he said how did you know that ha ha, first time I've had one up on him.. Little does he know I only know that from reading to many YA mermaid fictions ha ha ha
