Keep Calm and Carry On

Is it just me, or has anyone else seen a huge influx of usage of this lately:



The first time I saw it was a website called The Chive using it - but lately I'm seeing it all over the place. It was a propaganda poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the event of invasion.

Is there any reason its suddenly being used all over the place, or am I only noticing it now?
