I'm sure you've all seen the British war poster Keep Calm and Carry On many times. (Oh so many, many times.) And while I think we can all agree it's been done to death by now, I still get a kick out of a good geek parody. Here are some of my favorites:
And two more from the same site:
(If you don't get this one, go watch the IT Crowd on Netflix Streaming, stat.)
$20.40 from Impossible Alice
I'm surprised I couldn't find a better Potter parody. Why isn't there a "Keep Calm and Snitch On" with a flying snitch over the text? (There *is* a "Keep Calm and Catch the Snitch", but that sounds dumb to me.)
I found lots of versions of this one:
$14 from Flippin' Sweet Gear
($24 for women's sizes, though - ouch!)
You can also get it with a game controller instead of a mushroom, and in any color.
Love the electrical tape on the glasses here:
$19.95 from 604Republic (men's sizes only - curses!)
I've posted this one before, but it's still one of my favs:
Only $10 at Busted Tees , although it looks like they only have men's sizes left. (Or maybe that's all they ever had, since it looks like the model's wearing a men's cut. What the heck, geek tee makers?!)
Not a t-shirt, but a great poster:
Starting at $6.88 from artist SevenHundred
Haven't found this one on a shirt yet, either:
Found via this Tumblr blog, no credit given. (Anyone know?)
For my fellow craft geeks:
Found via NotCot, appears to be discontinued (Nooo!)
Check out the crown made of wrenches! I love it.
This is different enough to perhaps not count as a parody, but I like it anyway:
From Teefury, a shirt-a-day site, so it's no longer available. (Curses! Foiled again!)
As a fan of wordplay AND Trek, I especially like this one:
$25.99 from Cool Tees
(where it's also available on everything from magnets to iPod cases)
Heh. Aheh. Heh.
("There's Klingons on the starboard bow! Scrape 'em off, Jim!")
I also couldn't find a great Firefly version; just a "Keep Flying and Stay Shiny." Meh. Not great.
And since I couldn't find the Disney one I'd like to see, I went to the Keep Calm-O-Matic site and made it myself:
My star looks icky and should be smaller, but a graphic designer I am not.
So tell me, geeks, what would *your* parody say?
