The KTLA news crew got a chance to let out their inner 13-year-olds the other day during their birthday round-up.

Weatherman Henry DiCarlo wished a happy 10th birthday to a certain "Hugh Janus" with a straight face, and right away anchorman Chris Schauble started laughing: "It's one of those...it's one of those..." DiCarlo figured out too late that—much like Moe the Tavern owner on "The Simpsons"—he'd been pranked.

He played it off pretty well, laughing at himself: "I totally fell for it, didn't I?"

We predict this is going to make it that much harder to wish anyone named Amanda Hugginkiss and Hugh Jass a happy birthday on KTLA.
