Captain Bravo's Pirate Joke

Captain Bravo was a manly man of the sea who showed no fear when facing his enemies.

While sailing the seven seas one morning, his lookout spotted a pirate ship on the horizon, panicking the crew. Captain Bravo bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!"

The first mate quickly retrieved Captain Bravo's red shirt and whilst wearing the bright frock, he led his crew into battle and defeated the pirates.

Days later, the lookout again spotted not one, but two pirate ships. The captain again howled for his red shirt and once again they 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 do you call for your red shirt before battle?"

Captain Bravo replied, "If I am ever wounded in an attack, the red shirt will not show the wound. Thus, you men will continue to resist, unafraid."

The men sat in silence and marveled at the courage of such a manly man.

As dawn broke the next morning, the lookout once again spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirates ships approaching. The rank and file all stared at Captain Bravo, who calmly shouted, "Get me my brown pants!"
