God Save the King

God Save the King

I came across this British WWI propaganda poster while reading the Wikipedia page for “God Save the Queen”. I was wondering if there was any story to how friggin “My Country Tis of Thee” ended up with the same damn tune. It’d be like if they first circulated this Bill of Rights with an X drawn through the word “English” (Ps is there any word that means like what onomatopoeia means except it means when a written word or character looks like what you are describing?)

Anyway, I think we of the Internet can agree we’ve had our fill of variations on the Keep Calm and Carry On posters, and I’d like to nominate this fella as a new template. Like, if your roommate never takes out the recycling, you could put up version of this that said:

IT IS FAR BETTER

TO TAKE OUT THE RECYCLING

THAN TO BE KILLED

AT HOME BY A BOMB

TAKE OUT THE RECYCLING AT ONCE &

AND HELP STOP AIR AIDS

GOD SAVE THE KING
