Default Yo-ho-ho, Me hearties, A Pirate Joke

The Red Shirt
The Red Shirt

Long ago, when sailing ships ruled the waves, a Captain and his crew were in danger of being boarded by pirates. As the crew became frantic, the Captain bellowed to his First Mate, "Bring me my red shirt!".

The First Mate quickly retrieved the Captain's red shirt, which the Captain promptly put on and led the crew to battle the pirate boarding party.

Although some casualties occurred among the crew, the pirates were repelled. Later that day, the lookout screamed that there were two pirate vessels sending boarding parties. The crew cowered in fear, but the Captain, calm as ever, bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!".

Once again, he was brought his shirt, and, once again, he put it on, and, although there were some more casualties, the Captain and his crew repelled both pirate boarding parties.

Weary from all the battles, the men sat around on deck that night recounting the day's occurrences when an ensign looked to the Captain and asked, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before the battles?".

The Captain, giving the ensign a look that only a Captain can give, exhorted, "If I am wounded in battle, the red shirt does not show 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 next morning, the lookout screamed that there were pirate ships, 10 of them, all sending boarding parties on their way. The men became silent and looked again to the Captain, their leader, for his usual command.

The Captain, calm as ever, bellowed, "Bring me my brown pants!"

Having seen WAY too many brown pants in the ER last week, I'll pass on that joke, thanks!
