    Why do we have to leave the house when the men watch football?

  2. Goldenbrown says:

    The girl in the brown hood is CRYING.

    Watch Out! Grandma’s got a snowball!

  4. Karen says:

    Clark promised the entire Griswald family that the annual picnic would be great! Somebody tell Cousin Eddie to get out of the shed.

    “Shut up or you’re having a November wedding!”

  6. Pinky says:

    The ladies felt free to live life to it’s fullest while the men were out ice fishing.

  7. Maya B says:

    Growing up, when we traveled we always had to pack food and stop at a rest stop and eat at the grungy picnic tables there to save a few bucks (what I wouldn’t have given for a McDonalds instead). Looking at this it makes me think that they’re on a winter trip and did the same thing.

  8. Elle says:

    This is perfectly normal in Northern Canada. We’d be out in May having cookouts dressed like this with about a foot of snow in the ground. God I miss those days.

  9. GuardMama says:

    The “Golden Girls”, Kazakstani style.

  10. Moscow says:

    … smokers everyone, and not a match among them to light the barrel.

    “hope someone packed the sunscreen”

  12. nite owl says:

    Having pic-a-nic whilst waiting to see “Moose and Squirrel!”

  13. Pinky says:

    Double plus unfun.

  14. Stacey says:

    I can see Russia from my house!

  15. lagrange says:

    “Gee, it’s so cold that the slip and slide froze!”

  16. awkwardalisha says:

    teenagers guarantee to make any picture 105% more awkward.

  17. Steph says:

    These are clearly Marney’s Thanksgiving holiday rejects. After they were seen brandishing regulation size cereal spoons near the mashed turnip tureen, she relegated them to a nearby park to eat sandwiches off of the plastic bags they were packed in ad drink expired Vanilla Coke straight out of the can. And yes, she booted that uncouth baby of theirs as well!

  18. Snowrider says:

    You can tell what a nice day it was by all the people sitting at the picnic tables in the background! And…what is that “thing/structure” just on the other side of the fence?

  19. Bum Cheek says:

    Im sorry, but that vanilla coke has been photoshopped. Look at the shadows!!! The shadows!!!!!

  20. michelle says:

    Proudly sponsored by the good guys at Coca Cola.

  21. Rebelle says:

    Poor granny with her crumpled up tissue! Is no one having a good time in sub zero weather?

  22. dan says:

    Is there a stroller in the foreground?

    Where’s the baby?

  23. S says:

    Grandma is about to hurl all over the table.

  24. Tim says:

    G-g-g-glob-b-b-al-l-l w-w-w-arming. m-m-m-my A-A-A-A-**!!

  26. Steve says:

    In Soviet Russia, picnic eats you!

  27. Geoff G says:

    The future is so bright……I gotta wear shades!!

  28. kate says:

    Hey look, they finally figured out how to get the good table at the park.

  29. Deb says:

    You know the one standing in the back is saying, “Smile, dammit! It’s not that cold!”

  30. Robin Gardella says:

    This little outing was so obviously the idea of the person taking the picture they are scowling at!

  31. jnmcnally says:

    Been there, done that.

  32. Shelley says:

    The lady in the red scarf has a gun in the pocket. Won’t let the other’s leave.

  33. glasstabletop says:

    Oh my, I swear I have been there before!!!

  34. just wondering says:

    Grandma says, ” We ARE having a picnic today and you WILL have fun!”

  35. Karin says:

    so glad no one ever took a picture of me doing this – it does look ackward. Way back when I only had one kid and she loved the playground, I was there daily unless there was rain just so she would take a nap – my respite. I probably did 3 or 4 picnics a week at a playground. This stopped when I was pregnant with my second and my coat no longer fit around my belly so we started going to the mall playgrounds.

    • KAY IN OHIO says:

      I’ve been to picnics like this. My fiance’s family always have their yearly get-together in October in a park. I don’t understand either but I dont think it’s too much fun to wear a coat and gloves to play cornhole or volleyball.

      • Larry says:

        What is this “cornhole” that you speak about? It sounds dirty……or maybe it is an Ohio thing.

        • Lacie says:

          Ahahahaha! CORNHOLE!!! Yes, it is for sure an Ohio thing. I live in Ohio and here we make cornhole a drinking contest. This is why I love my country…we can turn anything into a drinking game. 🙂 Cornhole consists of throwing a bag of corn a certain distance trying to make it into the hole. Around here we deck this game out.

        • DeAnna says:

          Cornhole is what Ohioans call bean bag tossing,lol. when I went to school in Cincy, I thought I was in for a wild night when my sorority sisters suggested a game with our brothers. Bean bag tossing is serious business there.

          • summer says:

            Lol, we do the cornhole game here in WV, also. And believe it or not, it is still a bean bag game for us as well. One local bar even has an outside deck with several levels and a game on each level! Great fun, especially after a few brews.

          • Suki says:

            I now want to picnic in the cold and play cornhole while drinking vanilla coke. 🙂

        • LilJ says:

          Cornhole is popular in southern Illinois too!

      • Desdes says:

        yes please tell us how you play “cornhole” inquiring minds want to know.

  36. Jen says:

    The baby stroller is the craziest part. I sure hope that’s not a baby stroller…

  37. Morag says:

    My parents live on a cold and wet island north of Scotland. They regularly have barbeques on the beach dressed like this. Such fun … NOT!

  38. kandee says:

    From Russia with Love.

  39. patkerash says:

    Dang…somebody toss me a blanket

  40. Jeff M says:

    “I swear Marney! Next year, all entrees will be in regulation sized cassarole dishes! With a SERVING SPOON! AND A LID!! I know you CAN’T BE MORE SERIOUS! PLEASE! JUST MAKE THE AFTER THANKSGIVING PICNIC STOOOOOOOOOOOPPPP!!!”

    this dramatization brought to you by vanilla coke

  41. Becca says:

    The vanilla coke makes it seem legit

  42. Jano says:

    Even the little shed looks miserable and cold.

  43. Leanne says:

    Nice product placement

  44. Joel says:

    In Soviet Russia, Picnic has you!

  45. Boppie says:

    We. Are. Saving. Money. By. Coming. Here. In. The. Off. Season. Stop. Shivering.

  46. akprincess72 says:

    A sunny holiday in Siberia…

  47. Christopher says:

    Damn – now I want a Vanilla Coke. Of course, judging by the lack of smiles, they’re drinking the Coca Cola wrong.

    • Jess says:

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who developed a serious Vanilla Coke craving because of this pic! Maybe the Cokes are frozen and that’s why they’re so unhappy.

  48. nite owl says:

    Ah! A bracing good day for a picnic of tongue sandwiches, kippers and pickled eggs! A bloody good time!

  49. Matty says:

    I think it would be funnier if you said a nice dip in the pool was to follow. The really funny thing is that they appear to have a baby stroller with them and that one in the brown coat is either about to sneeze or cry…or both. If she does sneeze it is going all over that guy and his sandwich.

  50. Marsha says:

    Summer fun in Siberia!!
