Brian Pember's failed bid for world domination
Updated for your volunteering pleasure…
I just looked up the meaning of ‘fetch me my red shirt’
Ship is sailing the oceans.
A pirate ship appears on the horizon. The captain says “Men, bring me my red shirt!” The first mate fetches the shirt and the captain successfully leads an attack on the pirates that sinks their ship.
One of the sailors asked the captain “Why do you wear a red shirt in battle?” The captain responded “because if I am wounded, you will not see blood and will continue to fight as if nothing is amiss.” The crew was astounded at the bravery of the captain.
Later, twenty pirate ships appeared on the horizon. The men looked to the captain, waiting for the request that brought everyone so much strength. The captain looked at the horizon and said, “Men, bring me my brown pants!”
Another urbandictionary listing:
In college athletics, a red shirt is a player that is on the team, but hasn’t played in a game yet… Scholarships players are red-shirted all the time.
Johnny was given a scholarship to play quarterback, but was told by the coach that he would red shirt his freshman year until he learned the system.
