    It's an American holiday, so only the Americans really qualify.

     Picnics are not merely American. First mentioned way back in 1692 in France.  Teddy bears picnic was written by a British composer. Picnics are mentioned in Jane Austin's Emma. Charles dickens also refers to them as does Kenneth Grahame in Wind in the Willows. 

     

    It could even be said that this refererred to a picnic 

     

    A book of verse beneath the bough,
    A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou
    Beside me singing in the Wilderness –
    Ah, wilderness were paradise enow!

    Omar Khayyam, in his 12th century Rubaiyat[5]

    LOL... ~ thows an "American" apple pie at Dorsey ~   cheeky

    edit: that's funny - the block quotes are not working like they're supposed to. Dorsey - did you break the forum again?

  • Okay then, let's proclaim August International Picnic Month! As Cho pointed out, there are plenty of historical and literary presidents as examples. I mean, come on! There are even picnics on Mars! Ray Bradbury said so...

    I have enjoyed picnics in several different countries, as do ants everywhere. Have not been to Mars as yet, however.

    I merely meant that, since it's an American holiday month, only Americans qualify to be OUT TO LUNCH. (And they're GOOD at it!)

    STILL JUST KIDDING!

    Skywalker, hi! I swear I had nothing to do with breaking the forums. I did plenty of dancing around yesterday trying to figure out how the quote function works. Rule of thumb: avoid if possible.
