Captains Red Shirt


Centuries ago when the Seas were ruled by pirates, there was a certain captain. One day this captain was relaxing when the lookout burst into his quarters. "Captain, pirate ship off the port bow!"

The captain then called for his first mate and said, "First mate, bring me my red shirt!" The red shirt was brought to him, they went into battle and won.

The next day the lookout again burst into the room and said, "Captain, two pirate ships closing fast!" Once again the captain called for the first mate and said, "First mate, bring me my red shirt!" The first mate brought him his red shirt and once again they won the battle.

During the celebration the first-mate asked, "Captain, why do you always ask for your red shirt when we go into battle?"

"The answer is simple. That way, if I'm injured, the crew won't know and they won't lose hope."

Just then the lookout burst through the door, "Captain, ten ships closing fast!"

"First mate, bring me my brown pants!"

I've heard a variation of this one... something about English generals wearing red so that their soldiers can not tell when then have been injured. ...and since that day the French have worn brown pants.
