Is 'Keep Calm' so over?

Keep Calm (Red) Premium Giclee Print

Several weeks ago I came across a random post on some interior design website that shall remain nameless that featured an image of a perfectly acceptable decor which contained a 'Keep Calm and Carry On' poster. In amongst the comments to the post, there were quite a few that deemed the vintage propaganda image, and I quote, 'So over.' For several reasons, I find this  rather sad. First, the poster has incredible historical significance  and second, it's probably one of the best pieces of advice one can apply to their everyday trials and tribulations, let alone when Nazis come knocking at your door. 

So, my fellow design blog crawlers, is 'Keep Calm and Carry On' so over?

P.S. Although I've seen the image on every design site on the internet, including this one, I have never seen it in anyone's home in real life.
