A long time ago, Britain and France were at war.
During one battle, the French captured an English Major. Taking the Major
to their headquarters, the French General began to question him. The
French General asked, "Why do you English officers all wear red coats?

Don't you know the red material makes you easier targets for us to shoot at?"

In his bland English way, the Major informed the general that the reason

English officers wear red coats is so that if they are shot, the blood won't show
and the men they are leading won't panic. And that is why, from that day
until now, all French Army Officers wear brown pants.
