A palate cleanser dirtier to amuse or horrify you, as the case may be. Clue one that it’s not a real school play: We’ve seen this gimmick done before. Clue two: It went hyper-viral in less than a day, replete with coverage in major newspapers. Even on the ‘Net, things don’t naturally move that fast. Clue three: Surely there would have been some outraged media coverage after the school announced that the play was in production, i.e. this wouldn’t be the first we’re hearing of it. Clue four: Dude. A school approving of five-year-olds doing Scarface? C’mon.

Yes, it’s a fake. Can someone please pass that along to the angry parents of the local district?
