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

    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 after thought, 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 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.

    After the London bombings the French Government raised its terror alert level from Run to
    Hide. The only two higher levels in France are Surrender and Collaborate. The rise in the alert
    level was precipitated by a fire which destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively disabling their military.
