Yeah, that's what I meant, and after about a second of research I can't believe I didn't know its origin.

It's ironic the "keep calm and carry on" posters were never circulated, because that's exactly what the Brits did in WWII.

So are the shirts supposed to take on the same meaning as the poster? Or is it just a trendy phrase ran amok?
