    I was going to say that Rat has it down pat,
    but the fact is that he skips the panic part.

    On the TV show Alexei Sayle’s Stuff, the British comedian made a parody of the song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”; it was called “Panic.” Great stuff.

    I always wondered where the “Keep Calm and …” parody posters on FaceBook on their origin.

    Yes, it was a British WWII poster.

    Actually, Rat’s version is probably closer to human nature. I mean, I’d probably be cursing up a storm and running around like a chicken with its head cut off myself.

    I never knew that Rat was a member of the Tea Party …

    How does that saying go again? Something like… If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, then you don’t fully understand the situation.

    I heard just lately on the BBC that this poster was never actually used. They had it, but didn’t use it. I don’t know if that’s true or not.

    “Carry On” then became the title of a series of comedy movies.

    A bit like the Public Information Film they made in 1975: “What to do if someone in your house dies of radiation poisoning following a Nuclear Attack”.
    It was never broadcast, but is available on video.

    The “Carry On” films were named after the first in the series, Carry On Sergant, not after the poster.

    Why is “hissy” considered a swear word? :)

    Ah. I wondered where that stupid meme came from. We save their hides from the Germans, and THIS is the thanks we get? :-P
