    When I was a little kid I had decals on my bike with skulls and couldn't wait to be grown up so I could get a Skull and Crossbones tattoo. I thought anything pirate related was the coolest. Over half a century later I still don't have a tattoo. I do however have several different Skull and bones T-shirts and a Skull ring like the one that Rolling Stones guy wears. I wouldn't wear them out of the house because I don't want to offend some people that associate these items with totenkopfs. Nowdays every weirdo kid has skinny jeans, Converse tennis shoes and a skull and bones something or other. To me it is no longer unique. YMMV. tom.:cool:

    We would get the Jolly Roger flags and plastic skulls at the county fair each year and would use them to decorate the forts we built in the woods.

    I preferred the skull tattoo with the snake going into and out of it's eye sockets.

    I hoist a Jolly Roger once a year for the Gaspirilla celebration, commemorating a pirate who may or may never have existed.

    Other than that, unless its some girl trying to be cute, they're ridiculous.

    You don't have to be so literal.

    I don't have a problem with it.

    Years ago, while visiting Disneyland, wifey bought me a Pirates of the Carribbean hat (my alltime favorite ride) @ the Orleans Place souvenir shop. This was before the movie PotC and the logo change...

    I've worn it on every subsequent visit and folk ask where to find them. Guess I can send 'em your way, huh Mark?

    I bought a crystal skull at the Smithsonian in D.C. It's pretty cool. Had to edit when I noticed my avatar. I like it to.

    I also bought a small skull shaped bottle of Crystal Vodka for the container. I may drink the contents or maybe not. tom.:cool:

    they used to be cool....then they became so cliche, as to become a joke.

    and , oh yeah... the s.s. wearing them....that kinda wrecked it.
