KCCO isn’t defined in any dictionary (at least not one that I’ve found), but it should be a daily mantra for all of us.
Keep Calm, Chive On.
Simple enough, but what does it mean? First, go to thechive.com
Don’t come back here until you’ve explored at least one full days worth of Chive awesomeness.
Good. Feel how wonderful that made things? I’m sure you also noticed “KCCO” several times on their site. The Chive isn’t just a website chock full of trips down memory lane, yoga pants, and memes though. If you’ve been following them for a while (like I have) then you know they’ve also helped people in tremendous ways. They don’t stop at just being funny, they enlist help from “Chivers”. Being a chiver means everything from a high five in the airport from a fellow chiver you’ve never met, hooking up with fellow chivers at events, and, the most touching, using the network of chivers to raise money for chive friendlies that REALLY need the help.
Go through the archives of the chive and you won’t find one circumstance when the call for help has gone unanswered. Hell, the calls have been more than answered, chivers have gone above and beyond every single time. No one is recognized for doing this. No one expects accolades for helping. It’s a community of Chivers helping in any way they can, and it’s admirable.
It’s much like the Wyld Stallyns said, “Be excellent to each other” but in a modernized way.
So to answer the question, KCCO means more than just “check out these cool pics and videos”, it means “be a part of something that is more than you”. Keep Calm and Chive on.
