    No vacation ever really goes the way you think it will and despite how much you want to escape work, sometimes your boss shows up on the beach while you’re dancing with your friends and fires you because you weren’t supposed to be taking a vacation in the first place.

(RNN) - Imagine this: two good friends traveling the country trying to dig out dusty pieces of history that you can mount on a wall. It would make a great TV show, right?

(Intern whispering in my ear) Seriously? American Pickers? Like they couldn't think of a better name.

Well since there's already a show about a tall guy in a leather jacket and a short guy with a receding hair line trespassing in farmers' backyards, we might as well give you the next best thing.

How about a parody of the tall guy and short, fat guy? That's riiiiiight.

It's even better than the original. Well, almost - with enough friends and alcohol it might seem worthy of an Emmy.

Of course, everything in this parody is over the top, except maybe for Dannie. She really is that sarcastic on the real show, but maybe not that hairy. Probably. I think.

Muy caliente TV

For future reference, if you're ever learning Spanish and one day you get bored, just write, act out and record a cheesy telenovela with your friends.

It worked for a group with the YouTube username WE3 Productions.

This video has everything - love, betrayal murder - stuff that'll really get grandma excited, ya know.

It just screams college Spanish class project - we hope they got an A.

Brothers trick shots

Using objects such as silverware and toothbrushes, these two bothers share what a "normal day" is like for them – filled with impressive trick shots.

Unlike "Trick Shot Titus," the toddler that can man handle basketballs and Little Tykes basketball hoops, this video may be edited to make this collection of trick shots look as awesome as it seems.

It's still totally worth the watch...and then give them all a try.

#1 superhero dad

The internet's favorite dad, BatDad, is back!

After four Vine compilations of Blake Wilson BatDad Vine account, the web still isn't tired of his hilarious superhero father antics.

"The rules of the road don't apply to me," BatDad said.

"Dad, you just got a speeding ticket," his daughter answered.
