A Captain's Tale

Long ago lived a seaman named Captain Bravo.  He was a manly-man who showed no fear in facing his enemies.  One day, while sailing the seven seas, a look-out spotted a pirate ship and the crew became frantic.

Captain Bravo bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt." The First Mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt and whilst wearing the bright frock the captain led his mates into battle and defeated the pirates.

Later on, the look-out again spotted not one but two pirate ships.  The captain again howled for his red shirt and once again vanquished the pirates.  That evening, all the men sat around on the deck recounting the day's triumphs and one of the them asked the captain: "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before battle?"

The captain replied, "If I am wounded in the attack, the shirt will not show the wound and thus, you men will continue to resist, unafraid."

All of the men sat in silence and marvelled at the courage of such a manly man.  As dawn came the next morning, the look-out once again spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirates ships approaching.  The rank and file all stared at the captain and waited for his usual reply.

Captain Bravo calmly shouted, "Get me my brown pants."
