    A question...

    I love Dole Whips.

    I love graphics and clever sayings.

    But, I just don't understand the statement on the shirt.

    Is it a reference to (or parody of) some other famous saying?
    I just can't figure why it's stated in that particular way.

    What is the significance of saying the phrase
    "Keep Calm and Dole Whip"

    and not something like,

    "I don't get whipped up about anything...
    Except for a DOLE Whip!"

    It's a reference to the site thechive.com. "Keep calm and chive on"

    "Keep Calm and Carry On", from WWII. Why variations of this phrase have exploded in popularity in recent months defies my explanation at least.

    Agreed.

    I {heart} Dole Whip

    would make more sense and be easier to understand to the CMs

    Actually, I think "Keep calm and carry on" was the genesis of all those types of phrases. It was a propaganda phrased used by the British government during WWII when the war was going badly.

    I love Dole whips, but I have no idea what connection they have to that phrase, nor to that website.

    There isn't a connection, it's just a popular meme that has spread over the last few months. Here in the UK there are countless variations on shirts, bags, posters etc everywhere you look, you just change the wording to "keep calm and ....." and fill in the rest for whatever you like
