Picnics?
Yes, they are for connecting with your family&friends in the great outdoors over a meal.
I have never been to a picnic before, and most likely never will.
Why is the OP so mad about picnics?

You got the fluffy kitty kitty!

Seriously, what's the point of a picnic? Who plans picnics in 2017?

Yeah, lemme just spend an entire day planning about how to fit as much food and beverages in a basket without smashing it just so my family and friends can eat a bunch of sandwiches and chips in some loving field. And it's all on some ugly cloth that everybody needs to huddle over so you don't get torn apart by ants and other stinging insects because you spilled a bunch of crumbs on the grass and dirt and are drawing them to you.

Is it just to go outside? You can do that and get some cardio by, you know, walking around and not sitting on your fat rear end eating egg salad. Is it to eat things in a fancy environment? In that case, do you really need to drive an hour to some field to do so?

most "picnics" now are usually one person bringing pretty good food to the park and then a bunch of lazy moocher friends bringing booze and not contributing to the actual food part of the "eat food in the park" aspect of picnics

I've never planned a picnic really, they're just kind of a natural consequence of spending a day outdoors. I like to spend time hiking up in the Blue Ridge a couple times a year and generally bring a cooler with some stuff to make sandwiches so that I can head back to the car around noon and eat before going to another spot. It's nice.

It's to establish yourself as the alpha in your group of friends by showing you're way better at throwing a football/frisbee/whatever. And also to day drink.

Picnics are the cool place to hang out. You can find most of the cool people there. At picnics you can just chill and do whatever and totally relax. "Take it easy" is the picnic motto, for example, that's how laid back it is there. Show up if you want to have a good time. Another good reason to show up is if you want to hang out with friends.

yeah, a picnic is a thing you have while doing another thing that brings you outside. going outside just to have the picnic would make it seem lame. go outside more, op, you will learn these things.

when you attend a picnic and time starts running in reverse, you are actually attending a cincip.

participators in said cincip will then start vomiting up perfectly formed cucumber sandwiches and slices of gruyere cheese before excusing themselves to allow poop to vanish into their anus

Picnics are for having a light lunch in nice weather on a grassy hill and then running around with your dog like an idiot and laying on your back looking up out of breath afterwards.

You know the phrase "it's no walk in the park?" Picnics are an actual "walk in the park", but they sound like a lot of work so perhaps a walk in the park is "no walk in the park." Really makes you think.

Pack some nice cheeses and quality cured meats and bread and a bottle of wine, and take a lady friend out for a picnic.

Picnics are stupid as hell and the Punisher's family was killed during one so that goes to prove our theory that picnics are the worst.
