Hunger Games Parody: The Hunger Pains by The Harvard Lampoon
Anyway, I read the parody of the Hunger Games.
"WINNING MEANS WEALTH, FAME, AND A LIFE OF THERAPY LOSING MEANS DEATH, BUT ALSO FAME! THIS IS THE HUNGER PAINS
When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the Hunger Games—the second-highest-rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind Extreme Home Makeover—she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her entire life in the telemarketing district’s worst neighborhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simultaneously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk from home, Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz, Pita Malarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on the battlefield but in her own heart . . . which is unfortunately on a battlefield"
My Rating: ê ê ê ê
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
(It’s about $15, but cheaper at Walmart and Meijer)
The Hunger Pains is a wonderful, hilarious parody of the Hunger Games where they have twisted the characters’ names and other stuff about them. Sadley, no mention of a Mocking Jay here, but the cover has a dead one! (See the “x” for the eye?)
I underlined so many ridiculous quotes and scenes. It was way funnier than the real book (And I even like it better than the real book! Kantkiss is sooooo funny!)
It was also better than Nightlight, the Twilight parody. Vampires Suck was still pretty good. So anyone want to see a movie parody for Hunger Games? Maybe “The Capitol Sucks” or “Dystopian Movie” (Like Epic Movie or Disaster Movie). Katniss/Kantkiss/Catnip/Catpiss…Everdean/Neverclear/Evermean/Liverbean
I really love parodies, so I’m hoping that a year or two from now they’re make one!
