“The Hunger Pains”

The Hunger Games: End of the School Year Fun

If you’ve followed this blog at all, you know that I loved every book in The Hunger Games trilogy as well as the movie. I put a lot of effort into having an event at both my schools to celebrate it. But I also think it’s OK to make fun of the things we love. And Harvard Lampoon, a parody franchise, has provided us HG fans that opportunity.

They have a book out entitled The Hunger Pains. While I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, the online trailer, which closely mimics the HG movie trailer, is pretty darned funny. I’m too cheap to pay WordPress for the option of embedding video here—especially since you can’t view it at school anyway while YouTube is censored. But here is the link to a good laugh: http://youtu.be/GjPTnW7bYUQ.

There’s also a blooper reel to this book trailer, not quite as funny, but a little chuckle: http://youtu.be/lr9LwM9OoQ0.

Study for your finals and then break with this. Good luck with all your tests!
