First mate, bring me my red shirt! (Malor)
(smirk, heard it)

	I saw this on a local BBS and just about fell off my chair 
laughing.  Local retellings have always inspired laughter and (once) 

	Seems there was a treasure ship on its way back to port.  About 
halfway there, it was approached by a pirate, skull and crossbones waving 
in the breeze!

	"Captain, captain, what do we do?" asked the first mate.  

	"First mate," said the captain, "go to my cabin, open my sea 
chest, and bring me my red shirt."  The first mate did so. 

	Wearing his bright red shirt, the captain exhorted his crew to 
fight.  So inspiring was he, in fact, that the pirate ship was repelled 
without casualties.  

	A few days later, the ship was again approached, this time by two 
pirate sloops!  

	"Captain, captain, what should we do?"

	"First mate, bring me my red shirt!"

	The crew, emboldened by their fearless captain, fought heroically, and 
managed to defeat both boarding parties, though they took many 
casualties.  That night, the survivors had a great celebration.  The 
first mate asked the captain the secret of his bright red shirt. 

	"It's simple, first mate.  If I am wounded, the blood does not 
show, and the crew continues to fight without fear."

	A week passed, and they were nearing their home port, when 
suddenly the lookout cried that ten ships of the enemy's armada were 

	"Captain, captain, we're in terrible trouble, what do we do?"  
The first mate looked expectantly at the miracle worker. 

	Pale with fear, the captain commanded, "First mate.... bring me my
brown pants!"
