I am getting tired of seeing these posters that are commonplace in every trendy types flat.There are other variations of as well.Not sure exactly why but when i see too much of an object it becomes boring and a cliche when it concerns decor.These posters are like the 21stC version of flying ducks and everyone who buys them probably thinks that they are being different and original.
Anyway i was on the web as a distraction from what i should be doing and by chance i came across a poster that is a spoof of the original poster and then i thought about how i could have fun by rewording some more spoof posters but fortunately i havent a clue how to do it as i dont do graphics software.There would definately be a market for these if they could be printed up.I havent a clue if the design is copyrighted or wether spoofs would be an infringement of copyright.A quick search confirms that the original is out of copyright.
The first idea that springs to mind is a SIT DOWN and STFU poster.That would look good framed on a wall.Other posters worded with various insults would also look good.
I see someone else has done a KEEP CALM and CARRY ON YOU CUNTS.Another version is worded with OH SHIT WE ARE SO FUCKED.
PACK SOME HEAT and CARRY ONE would be good.
STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING and CARRY ON
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON YOU DUMB SHEEP
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON BELIEVING THE MSM
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON CAMPING/UP THE KHYBER PASS/AT YOUR CONVENIENCE etc etc
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON BEING AN ANNOYING PRICK
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON AS WE ARE AT DEFCON 1
KEEP THAT SHIT TO YOURSELF and CARRY ON
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON and ON and ON and ON..........
I cannot think of any clever amusing wordage right now other than those that are not that funny but the idea is there and i like the fact that the template isnt copyrighted.
I have just seen another that say NO MORE BOOM and BUST. Brilliant !!
Political messages would also work.An obvious example would be KEEP CALM as 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON WORRYING ABOUT ALKYIDA
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON BELIEVING THAT YOUR GOVT IS NOT LYING TO YOU
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON AS BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON THINKING THAT THE RECESSION/DEPRESSION WILL END
