Award of the Day: Real-life Griswolds Hit the Road, & Moreos?

For today's "Award of the Day." we honor innovation. A family from Georgia actually named the Griswolds built an exact replica of the wagon queen family truckster immortalized in "National Lampoon's Vacation" and drove it to Disney WOrld – because there is no such thing as Wally World. Watch above video

"This actually happened," reports CNN's John Berman. "And I should note it is the 30th anniversary of 'Vacation.' I know what you're thinking: what could be more impressive than that? well, behold... the Moreo"

It is an idea posted on Reddit and it does what we have all dreamed of doing forever. It separates the cookie part of the oreo from the cream part, and let's you dip the cream. The inventor has tried to contact Nabisco, but received no response.

"I think he is aiming too low," says Berman. "Anyone who can invent this is destined for bigger things."

The creator of "Moreo" wins our "Best Hope for Mideast Peace" award. They could even fix Washington, imagine Democrats and Republicans sharing an octuple stuffed moreo?
