"Oops!" Shroud of Turin washed with a red shirt

Vatican City has announced that the venerable Shroud of Turin has been turned pink when it was accidentally washed with a red shirt. "Simply because the shroud has been given a slight pinkish tint does not in any way diminish its sanctity," Vatican spokesman Cardinal Giovanni Lajolo said during a press conference held to address the spiritual repercussions of the shroud's staining.

The Cardinal continued, "It is still very much the icon of the suffering of the innocent of all times."
