Tip the MB: Fleur-de-lis the New Skull?

Tip the MB: Fleur-de-lis the New Skull?
I'm sure you're totally aware of it, but many guys aren't. I searched MB.com and haven't found much about the fleur-de-lis, but this shit is out of control. I work for a boutique chain that carries men's and women's clothing and a lot of our stock is great, but I swear there must be over 2000 of these damn French flowers floating around the store. They're all over t-shirts, wovens, razorbacks, hats, belts, and even jeans. When is this going to end? A few brands which are completely ridiculous and paste the fleurs-de-lis all over their clothing are: Rebel Spirit, Affliction, Rock Revival, Crash & Burn, Sinful, and Monarchy. I apologize if you already have a piece on the site dedicated to fleur-de-lis awareness, but I think people should be informed of the absurdity associated with wearing one of these on your person. Only the New Orleans Saints should be allowed to don this symbol of heraldry.
