April Fools’ Student Pregnancy Prank

A group of students at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Mich., turned their professor’s own cellphone policy against him in an April Fools‘ prank for the books.

Macroeconomics professor Stephen Barrows insists that anyone whose phone rings during class must answer it — on speakerphone. So when a student’s phone rang on April 1, she answered the call, only to have her (fake) pregnancy test results announced to her classmates. Barrows’ reaction is priceless — before (and after) finding out it was just a prank.

“We wanted to prank him because we have a great relationship with him and we knew he would enjoy a good joke,” Josh Weiland, one of the students who orchestrated the prank, tells Mashable. “His classroom environment is very open and relaxed, which makes students comfortable to ask questions.”
