I can imagine there are going to be quite a few angry words exchanged between the cardinals after the ceremony - along the lines of “You wore the red robes? I told you I was wearing the red robes! No, you definitely said you were going to wear the blue. Why would I wear the blue? Blue makes me look washed out on camera!”
Apparently the robes are crimson — the colour of blood — to symbolise the commitment of each cardinal to defend the church to the death and are no laughing matter.
