Don't know if this was posted here before...

A long time ago, Britain and France were at war. During one battle, the French captured a British officer. The French took the officer to their headquarters, where the French general began to question him.

The French general asked, "Why do you British officers all wear red coats? Don't you know the red makes you easier targets for us to shoot at?" So the British officer told the French general "British officers wear red coats so that if we are shot, the blood won't show and the men we are leading won't panic."

And so, from that day forward, all French Army officers began to wear brown pants.
