'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' Theme

Mistaken By Adults for

MASS SHOOTING THREAT

"Shooting some b-ball outside of the school" -- one of the many great lines from the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" theme song -- sounds A LOT like "Shooting some PEOPLE outside of the school" ... a lesson one H.S. in PA learned the hard way after locking down the district in FEAR OF A MASS SHOOTING.

It all went down in Ambridge H.S. Thursday when a medical receptionist called a 19-year-old AHS student to remind him of his upcoming optometrist appointment, but got his "Fresh Prince" themed voicemail instead -- according to the Beaver County Times.

The receptionist reportedly misinterpreted the kid's message -- in which he raps a few lines from the song -- as a massive threat to GUN DOWN every student in school and she quickly called the cops.

The police -- who can't take mass shooting "threats" lightly -- quickly alerted the ENTIRE school district, which went straight into DEFCON 1 mode and locked down, while cops searched for the teen.

The 19-year-old -- who was chillin' at school -- was swarmed by police and taken into custody to be questioned. After a few minutes of explanations and a careful review of the VM, law enforcement determined he was in fact ... singing "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" ... and was released.

The district's superintendent made a statement following the embarrassing mistake, saying "It gave us a wonderful chance to review our emergency procedures."

Yeah, someone should get that town the DVD box set ... or a TV ... or the Internet ... because it's freaking everywhere.

LOL a parent of a classmate of mine thought the lyrics to "gimme the night" byGeorge Benson were "Just Gimme the knife". Maybe Homeland Security needs an Office of Lyric identification. LOL.

Actually DEFCON 1 is the lowest alert of that system. Five is the highest. The country is probably always between 2-3, given the state of things in the world.

Come on TMZ, if you're going to use word play, learn the words.

Obama and his left wing Liberal croonies sure have everyone in this country going insane with fear. It's really sad what is happening. Let's not forget the kid who got suspended last week for "chewing a pastry into the shape of a gun".

Stay tuned next week when a kid gets suspended from school for dropping a turd in the shape of a shotgun.

I guess there's a reason this kid is 19 and still in school. Evidently he can't enunciate properly.
