A delicious prank on a professor has gone viral after students at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan decided to celebrate April Fool’s with their macroeconomics professor, Stephan Barrows. The video is below and begins with student Taylor Nefcy getting a cellphone call. Barrows makes anyone who gets such a call in class answer it on speaker mode. On this occasion, there was a prankster on the other end.
When the call was put on speaker, the class heard the voice say “Per your request, I am calling to inform you that the test results have come back positive. Congratulations!” Barrows is horrified and says “OK, you might want to shut that down.” However, the call continues with the voice saying “I know you told us the father is no longer in the picture, but we will be in contact with you throughout this whole process, so don’t worry about anything. We provide counseling and other maternity services at no charge.”
Nefcy quietly says “Thank you, I’ll call back later” As Barrows begins to apologize. Nefcy then delivers the coup de grace: “That’s OK, I’ve been expecting this. I already know what I’m going to name the baby. The first name will be April, and the middle name will be Fools.”
Well done, Ms. Nefcy. I hope this counts as extra credit on the final macroeconomics grade.
