We had fun researching this one. This from Wikipedia:

A skull and cross bones is a symbol consisting of a human skull and two bones crossed together under the skull. It is generally used as a warning for something that is dangerous or deadly, usually poison.

The symbol, or some variation thereof, was also featured on the Jolly Roger, the traditional flag of European and American pirates.

It is also used by the "Skull and Bones", a secret society at Yale University. Poole Pirates Speedway Team in the United Kingdom have the Skull and Crossbones as their team badge. It is also used by the British Army. The 17th Lancers adopted the skull and crossbones as its cap badge upon its creation in 1759, becoming known as the "Death or Glory Boys". The cap badge was later used by the 17th/21st Lancers and its present-day successor, the Queen's Royal Lancers who are still nicknamed the Death or Glory Boys.

In 1829 New York State required the labelling of all containers of poisonous substances. The skull and crossbones symbol appears to have been used for that purpose since the 1850s. Previously a variety of motifs had been used, including the Danish "+ + +" and drawings of skeletons.

Today, the skull and crossbones is still the only standard symbol for poison. It is, however, less common outside industrial usage than it once was. Apart from its negative marketing effect on environmentally conscious consumers, it may actually attract children due to its association with pirates, a popular toy and play theme. For this reason, there has been a proposal to replace the skull and crossbones (at least in the US) by the hopefully more meaningful and less enticing olive green "Mr. Yuk" symbol. æHowever, Mr. Yuk and his graphic rendering are registered trademarks and service marks of his creator, the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, and the rendering itself is additionally protected by copyright. This means that the name and graphic image cannot be used without a license from the owner„unlike the Skull and crossbones, which is in the public domain.

Shipping & Returns

We ship from REMO in Bondi. However, just about everything bearing a design is now printed to order and shipped from a production facility in Victoria. This new process takes a little longer, but the wait is worthwhile. For Regular Shipping orders, it takes roughly 7 to 15 business days to custom print and deliver your order using Australia Post. Some places outside metropolitan areas may take a bit longer. Need them a bit faster? Select the Express delivery option and we will use that method of shipping, although this will not speed the production process itself.Please note that international orders may be subject to additional customs fees and duties, which are the responsibility of the customer.CustOMERs can return or exchange for any reason whatsoever. Please just send the items back to us at PO Box 7488 Bondi Beach 2026 in the original packaging with clear exchange or return instructions.Having said this, all REMO merchandise bearing designs is now custom made to order. We do not operate a physical store and have no use for returned t shirts. Therefore, we would ask you then to please be very careful with T Shirt size selection. There is a table on every T Shirt product page that sets out relatively exact measurements for both width and length of the various sizes. If you have a T Shirt you like and a ruler near by, you should be able to work out your size. Also, AS Colour is a relatively well known brand, especially in the Australian market, so many of you would already know your size for that brand.
