    Default Keep it square

    Hi Group,

    What does it mean the phrase "Keep it square", I understand that is not very common in spoken english. But I know that this uncommonly word has two meanings. The first one means "keep it simple" and the second one means "Good-Bye" that is not so common, but people can understand you If you said it.

    If I am right or wrong, or I am missing some other meanings of this word, please let me know.

    Keep it simple; Keep it straight.

    As a farwell saying, "Keep it square" means, keep it respectable, be conservative. It can carry a sarcastic tone (i.e., Don't be conservative; Be liberal).

    All the best, :D

    "Keep it straight" means "Keep it honest". Can you give me some examples of "Keep it square" as a Goodbye and a common way, and in a sarcastic way too.

    Thanks in advance,
    Antonio.
