a "prince" of the Catholic Church; cardinals elect the pope. They are usually bishops. They wear scarlet dresses.
Are the St. Louis cardinals named after birds or the "princes" of the Catholic Church?

Nickname of sports teams at Leland Stanfurd Junior University. Named after the color, hence teams are called "the cardinal" as opposed to "the Cardinals" The name was chosen due to a lack of creativity on campus after the "Indians" name was terminated due to political correctness.

The Cardinal is a majestic being. He is intangible, yet will take blow jobs from the most attractive of females. His title is riddled with irony as he is actually a bad-ass mother fucker and is often referred to as Cardinal Mad-Fuck. He has been known to take on the form of a Grizzly Bear at the week-ends so he can basically just wreck cunts.

Nick Cave based his songs "Stagger Lee" and "O'Malley's Bar" on The Cardinal.

The Cardinal hangs out at Club Trax. He wines and dines on only the finest food and drink (kebabs and barricks). He hangs with only the freshest niggas in the hood (The Hurricane, Spicey, Mr. Allen, The Young Fuck and co.). He has been known to indulge in a bit of recreational drug use and highly recommends Northern Lights weed.
I heard The Cardinal is gonna be here tonight...
