Captain Bravo!

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 red frock he led his men into battle and
defeated the pirates.

Later that day, the look-out spotted not one, but two pirate
ships. The captain again called for his red shirt and once
again, though the fighting was fierce, he was victorious over
the two ships.

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 do you call for your red shirt before battle? The
captain replied, "If I am wounded in the attack, the shirt
will not show my blood and thus, you men will continue to
fight, unafraid."

All of the men sat in silence and marveled at the courage
of such a manly man as Captain Bravo. As dawn came the next
morning, the look-out spotted not one, not two, but TEN
pirates ships approaching from the far horizon. The crew
stared at the captain and waited for his usual reply.

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