The brave captain
Captain Bravado was very brave. He was famous every where in the world despite leading a tiny ship only. One day, as a pirate ship approached, he shouted at the shivering sailors:
- Bring me a red coat!
Dressing in the red coat, he plunged into the bloody battle. The pirates lost. The sailors admired their leader:
- Why did you wear red in the battle, sir?
- So the enemy did not know when I bleed, and you guys could focus on fighting as well.
The next day, 10 pirate ships surrounded the poor little ship. Captain Bravado calmly ordered:
- Bring me a pair of dark pants!
