Captain Bravo.

  1. Long ago, there lived a sailor named Captain Bravo. He was a manly man's man, who showed no fear when facing his enemies.

    One day, while sailing the Seven Seas, his lookout spotted a pirate ship. The crew became frantic!

    Captain Bravo bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!" The first mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt, and while wearing the brightly coloured shirt, the Captain bravely led his crew into battle and defeated the pirates.

    That evening, all the men sat around on the deck recounting the day's triumph. One of them asked the captain, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before battle?"

    The captain replied, "If I had been wounded in the attack, the shirt would not have shown my blood. Thus, you men would continue to fight, unafraid."

    All of the men sat and marveled at both the courage and intelligence of such a manly man's man.

    As dawn came the next morning, the lookout spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirate ships approaching! The crew stared in worshipful silence at the captain and waited for his usual brilliant orders.

    Captain Bravo gazed with steely eyes upon the vast armada arrayed against his ship, and without fear, turned and calmly shouted, "Get me my brown pants."
