The secret of Red Shirt and Brown pants

Long ago, when sailing ships ruled the waves, a captain and his crew were 
in danger of being boarded by a pirate ship. 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 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!" And once again the battle 
was on, however, the Captain and his crew repelled both boarding parties, 
although this time more casualties occurred.

Weary from 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 battle?"

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 with boarding parties on their way. The men became 
silent and looked to the Captain, their leader, for his usual command. The 
Captain, calm as ever, bellowed, "Bring me my brown pants".
