    A long time ago, Britain and France were at war -- go figure.

    During one battle, the French captured an English colonel. They took him to
    their headquarters, and the French general began to question him.

    Finally, as an afterthought, 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 understated English way, the officer 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 to this, all French army officers wear brown
    trousers.
