Does that mean I can use it to punctuate vaguely morbid, groan-inducing puns right before a classic rock queue?

Canon, sucka.
Let's not forget the blood of the enemy's crew either. Undiscovered Country had Bones practically swimming in Pepto Bismol

This was my belief as well. Opening the flap was the equivalent of a man in a suit loosening his tie and unbottoning his collar. It's been fun to read the reasons as posted by others in this thread though.

Quite simply.... the TWOK uniforms are what ancient British Navy Captain's prefered. A dark red top to hide blood if they are injured and dark pants in case they are out numbered :p

Only if you want to inexplicably leave a hit televisions show for a movie career that never materializes and show up years later on a crappy spin-off to deliver those groan-inducing puns.

Or you can just flip open your tunic.

It's up to you, really. :p
