April Fools' Day came and went, and if you thought the whole pranking tradition was a little lame, think again. While it may be late coming (kind of like what happened to this student...), this joke was certainly worth waiting for.
Barrow is so taken, he quickly tells the student to turn off the speaker.
When the message continues, he publicly apologizes to Nefcy, who says, "That's okay. I've been expecting this..." before delivering the final sucker punch.
You've never seen a professor look so relieved.
As busy moms, we joke about it. Is it 'wine o'clock' yet? we say. But a survey by Today has found that our drinking habits are no laughing matter.

There you are, yet another parent posting yet another cute photo of your kids on Facebook. *Yawn* But what if, instead of blindly 'liking' the picture, a user spotted something that might save your child?
According to an article in Today, Tara Taylor uploaded a shot of her daughter Rylee's cute new hair style to Facebook. So far, so innocuous. But a friend got in touch and alerted her to the strange glow coming from the three year old's eye.
“I just texted Tara and told her, ‘Hey, it could be nothing, it could just be the flash, but there could be something wrong with Rylee’s eye,’” said Stacy Carter.
Concerned, Rylee’s parents took more pictures, before taking their daughter to a retina specialist. Sure enough, the little girl was tested and diagnosed with the rare Coats disease, in which dilated blood vessels in the retina leak fluid in the eye. If undetected, the one-in-100,000 condition can cause retinal detachment and blindness.
Tara Taylor was stunned to find her daughter could not see out of her left eye. Though her vision is not likely to fully return, Rylee has regained some peripheral sight due to laser treatments and injections.
Her parents are simply grateful her friend was paying attention to her Facebook feed that day.
