PICNIC is a phrase that members of the chat room like to say when a live stream goes down.

Origin

The story of PICNIC begins in early 2010. After about a dozen episodes of NSFW, there was one episode that had technical issues getting going. When the live stream failed, the chat room started posting "PANIC!" in rapid succession. Amongst the panic, a lone "PICNIC!" emerged from Patrick Delahanty. Eventually, the "mistake" caught on, and the word PICNIC became the universal signal of shit hitting the fan.

In February 2012, popular Justin.tv/Twitch streamer Jayson Love (AKA "Man" of MANvsGAME), appeared on episode 115 of NSFW (Man Hype Man) and picked up the phrase somehow. Man's kinda popular. The shit spread like wildfire, and inspired the "panicBasket" emote.
