What do people named Gerald, Jordan, Tomeka, John, Matt, Donna, Jerry, Lisa, Jeff, and Juan have in common?  They all work on the staff of CNN Student News, and they were all in on the second-biggest practical joke of my career.

I say second-biggest because, as ashamed as I am to admit it, this happened before last December:  I was told we were running a report about something newsworthy, I believed it, and instead our producers showed some goofy bloopers of yours truly.

This time, I thought I was prepared.  This time, I checked the video before the show to make sure there were no surprises.  This time... I was wrong again.

Wanna see what happens when an anchor is duped on his own program?  Watch the last part of Friday's show!

    That sure is embarrassing! But I think the last one is much funnier. 😀 And the producers are pretty sly.

    ALL RIGHT!! GO Carl, GO Carl, GO Carl, GO GO!! 😀
    I was laughing harder than ever watching the bloopers just keep on coming. I loved that they put all your puns together as well.
    "Here's a thought-BYE!" 😀 😀
    The dancing rocked as always! I can't believe those producers got you again. When you became a spainard was the funniest of them all!!!! HA!

    But don't be too embarrassed, everyone is crazy. Although you are exceptionally crazy.
    Have a GREAT SUMMER CARL!! 🙂

    Carl, you're awesome! I never knew you were so pun-ny (funny) and great at dancing!
    Everyone does weird stuff, it's just that you were unlucky to be caught on tape. Keep it up!
    Thanks, producers, for catching Carl like that!

    Your dances are better than your puns, no offense.

    Hi, I'm Soi from South Korea and I always enjoyed your show.
    You(Carl) always made me smile by doing something strange. (To tell you the truth, I was surprised, at first, to see you cross your legs on the real program)
    Great Summer~ I hope to see you soon~
