It’s the Fictional Characters Picnic!

Start the slide show

It’s the season of picnics! It’s also the season of “I didn’t even know I had sweat glands there!” and “This park belongs to the mosquitoes now. We must respect their customs and live by their laws.” But mostly, picnics!

We’d like to think our picnic game is pretty tight (hot tip: every single cheese), but as we do in most areas of life, we decided to look to the fictional universe for inspiration. It turns out that fictional characters have some pretty good pic-tips of their own! (But we still don’t want to hang out with Edward and Bella. Cool it with the PDA, guys. We get it—yours is a love that transcends both death and the nature of vampires—but you’re making everyone uncomfortable.)
