Fun on a Friday: say hello to my (very) little friend.

I’ve always said . . . getting kids involved in school plays at a young age is a surefire way to make sure the theater survives.

But . . . maybe I should have been more specific about the type of plays . . .

Outraged at this video?  Want to write a letter to the school board?  Want to pistol-whip the parents of these poor popcorn addicted children for letting them participate in this school function?

Before you start burning VHS copies of gangster movies, you should probably know that this video is staged.  Yep, it’s a viral (with about 2,000,000 views!), created by indie filmmaker, Marc Klasfield.  Read about it here.

I originally meant this post to be a Friday Fun Day post, meant to give you all a few laughs as we go into what looks to be a glorious Easter/Passover weekend.  But there is something we can learn from it, so we might as well:

1.  Kids in entertainment are more valuable than a pile of cocaine/popcorn.

2.  Contrast, or an idea that doesn’t make sense (kids playing gangsters), is inherently funny.

Happy fudgin’ holidays.
