How to Celebrate

The idea behind Panic Day is “Don’t Panic”. Yes, just like in Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. There are plenty of things to panic about in today’s world. According to a forum about Family Feud answers, when asked “What are things that make people panic?”, the top 6 answers on the board were:

  1. Tornado/Storms
  2. Fire
  3. Money/Debt
  4. High Gas Prices
  5. Spiders
  6. Natural Disaster.

Do you panic about any of those? If not, that’s OK, but you need to figure it out before International Panic Day arrives on June 18th.

The Cans

To honor this day we are featuring 4 cans with things that make me panic.

If that isn’t scary enough to let panic set in, Pepsi Germany also gave us a set of Spice Girls cans that same year.
