Red Shirt, Brown Pants

by Joe Cassady

A 17th Century captain was sailing along with his crew when a pirate ship came over the horizon. The captain yelled, "Cabin boy, get me my red shirt." So, the boy gets his red shirt and they victoriously battle the pirates.

Several days later, they spot another pirate ship. The captain yells "Cabin boy, get me my red shirt." They again battle the pirates and are victorious.

Later when things had settled down, the cabin boy asks the captain, “Why do you always want your red shirt just prior to battle?"

The captain responds, "Well, in case I am inflicted with a wound, I don't want the crew to see my injury and lose spirit."

"I see," says the cabin boy.

A few days later, they sight 20 pirate ships in the distance. The captain yells out, "Cabin boy, get me my brown pants."
