Captain Bravado

Wow, that last post didn't go over too well. Oh well, I guess we can't agree on everything. I still love you all.

On the lighter side, here's a story for you. Let's go back hundreds of years.

Pirates have been raiding Spanish ships for decades now and everything the Spanish have tried only managed to cost the Crown more money with no success. That is, until they hired Captain Bravado.

"Bring me my red shirt!," Captain Bravado ordered the first mate. Not only did he fight valiantly, shooting a half a dozen pirates dead with his pistols and a dozen more slain by his saber, the story of the red shirt was something of legend.

"Why did you want me to bring you a red shirt, Captain Bravado?"

"Because if I got cut, my men will not see me bleed and will continue to fight."

The story made the rounds and Captain Bravado became the largest hero in the Spanish Empire.

A year later, five pirate ships were spotted. The guy right away notified Captain Bravado, who promptly ordered his first mate "bring me my brown pants!"

Ha! Great potty joke without being dirty.
What is it with pirates and mafia? They have this allure to women when they're really a bunch of psychos. Must be the outfits.
