Yay for psycho L.A. moms who dress their preschoolers up in caps and gowns and take grown-up grad photos of them, as if finishing preschool were some kind of accomplishment!

Just the kind of mom, come to think of it, who would go hoodrat backward on another mom if the photo wasn't turning out just right.

Indeed: Education Action Group News posted this terrfying video today...

... of an all-out mom brawl at Weemes Elementary School in South L.A., where one such ridiculous ceremony reportedly took place on June 9.

The woman who shot the video tells EGP News that "all the kids had to share a cap and gown for pictures" because of "budget issues," which in itself is pretty hilarious. Combine this classic Great Recession scarcity of resource with 45 power-tripping mothers, and you've got YouTube crack cocaine (complete with purse-to-face Kung Fu):

"One of the moms in the video was basically taking over and the other one didn't like it and told her something about it," says the uploader. "The sad part was that there was an older lady that got pushed and she actually hit her head on a bookshelf and I rushed to help her but when this other mom rushed in to help us the angry women actually attacked the other mom."

We're going to disagree and say the "sad part" is more the dozens of children shrieking at the top of their lungs in the background (perhaps even underfoot), scarred forever at the sight of their mothers clawing at each others' throats over a freaking cap and gown.
