Ship Trouble

Ship Trouble

There was once a pirate who led his ship across the sea, with his shipmates and other crew members onboard. Every now and again, other ships would come in the way of theirs and they would battle it out to see who is the most powerful.

The thing that puzzled the shipmates the most was that every time they came to battle, the pirate would always ask for his red shirt.

So one day, one of the shipmates decided to ask the pirate his reason for always wearing his red shirt whilst in battle. Upon his questioning, the pirate's reply was..."Well, in the case that I get injured while fighting, as the shirt is red, you will not be able to see the blood, and therefore you can carry on fighting without being distracted."

The shipmate thought this was a fairly clever reason for him wearing the red shirt, and carried on about his business on the ship.

A few days later, the shipmate cleaning up on the upper-deck, when suddenly 100's of ships caught his eye, and they were coming right towards their ship. Instantly, he ran in the direction of the pirate, to warn him of the unfortunate news.

Once informing the pirate, he asked him whether he should get his red shirt now. In return the pirate replied with a nervous look upon his face..."No, this time get my brown trousers!"
