FREAK OUT AND BREAK THINGS A poster-maker toy for you.

Here's a game first attempt at mashing up the "Keep Calm" meme with one of the t-shirt slogans of my youth.

I just made one that reads FREAK OUT AND BREAK SHIT, thanks to you. Twice.

My first predictably ribald attempt had already been made by someone else, by fortunately, my second attempt has a deft subtlety that few others can match.

Oh damnation, I didn't even actually read that first link. At least I had 'shit' in there.

I can't link to mine because of some kind of ridiculous "The specified path, file name, or both are too long" error, but I trust you'll find it.

The boys I nanny for have a rug (or rather, their family does) that is the traditional "KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON" but I swear, they're definitely mis-reading that thing as "FREAK OUT AND BREAK THINGS."

I dunno which they need more, literacy skills or a more accurate rug.

But I couldn't remember the hex code for MeFi blue, which would have really been better to use

It's #006699. Which is really easy to remember if you pretend that it's that scene from Bill & Ted where slightly-future Bill and Ted are trying to convince slightly-past Bill and Ted of their authenticity:
Slighty-past Ted: If you guys are really us, what hexcode are we thinking of?
Slightly-future Bill and Ted: #006699, dudes!
Slightly-past Bill and Ted: Whoa!
Bill, Ted, Bill, Ted: [air guitar]

Slightly off-topic: if the original poster is in the public domain, does this also hold for the crown illustration above the text?

It doesn't look like the site has a search option, and I made this one on Sunday, so it's likely too far back in the "browse" section for me to bother looking.

Here it is on my server.
