>The Red Shirt
>Long ago, when sailing ships ruled the waves, a captain and
>his crew were invaded by another pirate ship.  As the crew 
>became frantic, the captain, bellowed to his first mate, 
>"Bring me my red shirt!"
>The first mate quickly retreived the captain's red shirt.  
>The captain put it on and led his crew into battle. There 
>were a few casualties, but they won the battle.  Later that
>evening, another battle broke out with an opposing pirate ship.  
>The captain, calm as ever, bellowed to his first mate, 
>"Bring me my red shirt!"
>They defeated the pirate ship with no casualties this time.
>Weary from the battles of the day, the men looked to their 
>captain and one of them asked, "Sir, why do you always call 
>for your red shirt when in battle?"
>The captain replied, "If I am wounded in battle, the red 
>shirt doesn't show the blood of the wound, and thus, you men 
>will continue to fight unafraid." The men sat in silence 
>marveling at the courage of such a man.
>As dawn came, the lookout screamed that there were nearly 10 
>pirate ships straight ahead.  The men became silent and 
>looked to the captain for his usual command.
>The captain, calm as ever, bellowed "Bring me my brown pants!"
>Passed on by Magnus
