: : There is a difference of opinion at our home on the phrase red and green shouldn`t be seen or is it blue and green shouldn`t be seen, does anyone have a comment to back up which is the correct phrase?

: It's awlays been 'red', as far as I'm concerned.

The little rhyme to make it a mnemonic device is "_____ and green should never be seen, unless there's something in between." Whether the blank is filled with blue or red seems to be in dispute.
