VIVA LA SCIENCE

The likeness of the graphic was a propaganda poster in south america before american pop culture made a t-shirt of it.

I don't know if you can call a scientist a celebrity, but the state Einstein resided in was a common-law state where his right to celebrity died with him.

Woot interpretation doesn't rely on standards. This style of poster is part of pop culture now, and Einstein is probably the best known scientist of the modern era.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

If they kick this for pop-culture, they must kick all of the "Keep Calm" entries as well.
Will they?

Historically they haven't rejected any of the Keep Calm entries. Besides, there are tons of parodies that very very closely follow the style of very popular propaganda posters in this derby, many of them with likenesses of famous scientists. I think the likenesses are well within the realm of the theme, personally.
