The Hunger Pains! The Mainly Death Games! The… Mockstrich?!

Yes, a mockstrich.

A Mockstrich?

If you’re wondering what are these “Hunger Pains” and “Mainly-Death Games” that I’m talking about, feast your eyes on these Hunger Games Parodies that have just hit the web.
The Hunger Pains: A Parody by The Harvard Lampoon
The Hunger Pains which was written by members of Ā The Harvard Lampoon, is set to be released on the 7th of February 2012.
As excitement surrounding the Spring 2012 release of the major motion pictureĀ The Hunger GamesĀ reaches a fever pitch, theĀ Harvard Lampoon‘sĀ TheHunger PainsĀ takes on the story of a young girl forced to join a survival contest in order to save her community in dystopian, post-apocalyptic Panem.
Beyond a scene-for-scene parody of Suzanne Collins’s book,Ā TheĀ Hunger PainsĀ lampoons not only Collins’s writing and characters, but cleverly tackles the themes of morality, government control, and personal independence.Ā The Hunger GamesĀ trilogyĀ has sold more than 3 million copies in print;Ā The Hunger PainsĀ is the perfect gift for the millions of fans of the book universally hailed as addictive, exciting, poignant, complex, and brilliantly plotted.

The Hunger but Mainly Death Games by the guys who wrote Nightlight(?)

Meanwhile, The Hunger but Mainly Death Games, is another parody story which features the lovely *coughCANNIBALISTICcough* Mockstrich. The Hunger but Mainly Death Games was written by two of the masterminds who createdĀ Nightlight (A Twilight Parody)Ā andĀ is set to be released on 18 November 2011.
From authors of Nightlight comesĀ The Hunger But Mainly Death Games, the only parody brave enough to suggest that The Hunger Games was way more about death than food.
Or at least this is what Bratniss Everclean discovers, when she shortsightedly volunteers for a teenage death tournament. But she soon realizes there are fates worse than deathā€¦like having to kiss her fellow competitor and lifelong stalker, Pita Malarkey.
The Hunger But Mainly Death GamesĀ will make you laugh so hard that you die. The authors assume no liability for any reading-based deaths. Read at your own risk.
As much as I dislike having parodies for books with such a deep message in them, it is a sign that The Hunger Games is quickly becoming a phenomenon.
I mean, The Harvard Lampoon themselvesĀ describedĀ the excitement surrounding The Hunger Games as a ‘fever pitch’.
So let’s just enjoy these parodies.
And while you’re waiting for these parodies to be released, try stomaching this Fan-Written Hunger Games Parody.
May the Hamburjays be ever in your favour!

  1. Hey guys, my name is John Owen, and I’m one of the authors of The Hunger But Mainly Death Games, along with Aaron Geary. We also are two of the authors of Nightlight. We were both members of the Harvard Lampoon in 2009, which is when members of the Harvard Lampoon wrote Nightlight.

    The students who are writing The Hunger Pains weren’t members of the Lampoon at that point, they were still in high school. So, they’re members of the same organization, but they aren’t the actual authors of Nightlight.

    Hope that clears things up! And keep an eye out for our first chapter, which we’re releasing for free next week!
