    The school was for the deaf.

    I read about this on April Fools Day. It was described as one of the great pranks. (Being deaf would certainly help survive a Taylor Swift Concert.)

    Brilliant! I think these were the same pranksters who named the British Antarctic vessel “Boaty McBoatface”

      That’s right. They did wind up donating $10,000 to the school’s music department though.
