And their grammar. It's "cooperate", not "co-operate".

It's quite permissible to hyphenate 'co-operate' - the OED allows both.

I suppose probably only the British would find it amusing. Keep Calm and Carry On 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. Seeing only limited distribution, it was little known. The poster was rediscovered in 2000 and has been re-issued by a number of private companies, and used as the decorative theme for a range of other products. There were only two known surviving examples of the poster outside government archives until a collection of about 20 originals was brought in to the Antiques Roadshow in 2012 by the daughter of an ex-Royal Observer Corps member.

The slogan crops up everywhere in the UK now, in various forms, as you can see!

That doesn't mean that I do, though
