Oh yeah, you do need to have it pulled; even if the pulp is secure, the missing section vastly increases the likelihood that it eventually will be.

Having your thirds out shouldn't be a problem. I didn't bother with a general but I know a lot of people don't fancy doing it that way.

The comments on them are a great way of knowing which of my old Facebook contacts from High School I should just kind of let go.

Made me think of a screencap of a Facebook post I saw, where a girl made a post saying "Like this post if you think gay marriage is wrong". Somebody asked her what was wrong with gay marriage, and she said "Nothing, I'm unfriending everyone who likes this post.

How creative of you. You put a different word after "Keep calm and...".  You are now a marketing genius!

You know, inspecting mirrors is a job I could really see myself doing.

EDIT: And before you guys criticize that choice of career, I came to this conclusion after a lot of reflection.

This is my number one hated meme. The least clever thing on the web. And it's why I hate that stupid Chive site. They recycle crap from the web and use that sh***y ass meme as their slogan.

How in the heck did a WWII propaganda poster become a meme in the first place?  Why did it take so long?

It wasn't even publicly released. There were only a few of them made, but people thought it sounded awful British when they found it in 2000 and started passing it around. And I agree, it has that certain emotional detatchment from the situation that the British are quite proud of, and I find humorous.  But that's only in the original context. It becomes asinine when you change it to "Keep Calm and Read" to promote your book fair.

Yeah the original poster was essentially saying "Fuck Hitler, he can't spoil our days no matter what he does" in a very English way. This really does seem to be lost on the creators of the meme.

Sorry about the strangely virulent rant about The Chive. I'm just so sick of Chive evangelists spouting that meme and trying to get me to look at the same stuff that's already been around the web for months, but on that particular site.
