The value of this shot is that it taught you about vignetting. I bet you don't let your friend touch your lens with his nose anymore.

Kane, Many photographers create their vignette in post production. There are a variety of ways to do this, depending on your software. For a subtle effect on many of my shots I use the lens correction filter in PS (also in PS Elements) and introduce a vignette. If you have one of those pieces of software load up the filter and play with the sliders. It's really easy.
For a more pronounced effect, I like the method detailed at the bottom of this long tutorial about antiquing your digital images. It's the last tip given on the post, so scroll down.
Your question seems to imply that you would rather do this in camera rather than in post production. If you have software available, I would encourage you to try that instead, as it gives you much more creative freedom. If you really want to emphasize the in-camera effect all you need is a sheet of black construction paper (or foam craft paper). Roll it into a cylinder around your lens and cut to desired length. There ya go!
