    A new prank video that's surfaced a little late for April Fools' Day might just win for prank of the year. Here's what you need to know: This Aquinas College professor has one rule in his classroom. If a phone rings during class time, the student must answer it on speaker phone. Seems like a fair rule that's sure to keep kids' phones on silent, right?

    Well, needless to say, the kids took advantage of the rule and completely fooled the professor with a prank that he admits he'll treasure forever. And maybe his students will realize that some calls should remain, ahem, private.

    Not too long ago, I turned 40...

    I was telling a friend that I'd be willing to trade in my Gen X status for that of a 30-year-old hipster who wears black-rimmed glasses (for statement, not vision, purposes). Then, I'd never have to admit that I spent the Saturday nights of my childhood hoping beyond hope that Charo would be the surprise guest on The Love Boat or that somehow, Shari and Lambchop would find themselves in an eerie episode of Fantasy Island where Shari was the puppet. (What, I'm the only one who wished for that story line? I think not.)

    No, I wouldn't know a lot of things like, the pain of seeing Chachi marry Joanie or the name of my first Cabbage Patch Kid or the "awesome" effects of Sun-In, had I not been a poster child for Generation X. Things like this:

    Seems that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake can do no wrong. What better way to close out the first week of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon than with such an iconic guest. They could barely even contain their excitement about what was to come -- at first, they just sat there awkwardly looking at each other, then grabbed some conveniently hidden microphones and launched into "History of Rap 5." Yes, they've done this four times before already.

    They rap everything from LL Cool J to Salt 'n' Pepa to the Fresh Prince theme song, including some modern day hits like Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools (Drank)" and a mash-up of Jay Z's "99 Problems." They finished off the amazing routine by jumping into the audience and belting out RUN DMC and Aerosmith's "Walk This Way."

    So much inane drama occured behind the scenes when it came to late-night talk show hosts, but for The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon finally took over as host. Between David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy, the dust has finally settled, and The Tonight Show is back in New York City. Even Jimmy addressed the controversy in his opening monologue: "I’m Jimmy Fallon, and I’ll be your host for now."

    And the show was very New York. The opening credits were done by Spike Lee and U2 performed their new single, "Invisible," on the Top of the Rock at dusk.

    But of course, Jimmy enlisted the help of all his "pals" to kick off the show, and the clip that is sure to take over your Facebook feed this morning features Jimmy doing a rather familiar bit with none other than Will Smith.

    We already knew he could sing and dance after watching that electrifying performance at the Super Bowl, but Bruno Mars is flexing some serious comedic acting chops on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. With the talk show host feeding him lines through a hidden ear piece, Bruno played a prank on an unsuspecting nurse in the dressing room.

    Faking a throat injury, Bruno, or Ramón as he prefers to be called, hasn't "swallowed since the Super Bowl." Ellen's words, not mine. The poor and sweet nurse gently examines his throat while Bruno and Ellen try everything they can to make her crack.

    Plus, there are tears. You just have to see it for yourself.

    When tuning in to the Opening Ceremonies for the Sochi Winter Olympics, Bob Costas popped up on my screen as the main correspondent, sporting a pair of hilariously dorky glasses and an extremely red eye. My first thought wasn't, Oh, good to see they're tackling the controversial political issues about why they're hosting in Sochi or Why am I watching Maria Sharapova when she's a tennis star, which has absolutely nothing to do with winter sports? Nope, besides being annoyed by a frustratingly slow start, my first thought was, I can't wait to see how the Internet responds to Bob Costas' eye.

    And respond they did. Everyone's immediate thought was that Bob had pink eye, but usually that could be cured in a few days with some antibiotics. But the infection spread -- and was getting worse. Finally, NBC had no choice but to replace Bob with Matt Lauer. Seems his evil eye was scaring all the kittehs and little children out there tuning in to the Olympics.

    This has been the week of Facebook Look Back videos. You can't log on without being bombarded with -- and feeling guilty if you don't watch -- every video your friends and family members post of their time spent so far on Facebook earth.

    But admit it: Walter White's life on Breaking Bad is so much more interesting than any of ours, so naturally his Look Back video, which was created by Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues, is one we actually want to watch.

    I recently read a fabulous article by Sherrie Campbell called "8 Guaranteed Ways to Emotionally F*ck Up Your Kids." Now, to be honest, I originally clicked on the article because I imagined it to be some mocking list filled with humorous fare, like, "When they're taking a bath, scream 'Shark' and run out of the room." Though the actual piece was a lot more astute, I'm pretty sure that would be totally scarring as well.

    In fact, one moment of creatively messing with your kiddos (for your own amusement) could potentially last a lifetime (see Jimmy Kimmel). So when I finished the piece, I still wanted to read the sarcastic version. Who was gonna write that?

    Since I've already written lists about the lies we tell our kids to stay sane and the Momisms we trick them with, I thought, why not me?

    That said, here it is: 13 Guaranteed Ways to F*ck Up Your Kids (WARNING: DO NOT TRY THESE AT HOME, IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO TAKE CARE OF YOU WHEN YOU'RE OLD) ...
